    Ol’ Blue, USA® Travels to Bristow Elementary School

    The “Big Wheels, Little Kids”© Program headed to Bowling Green Kentucky to the future drivers of tomorrow, the students of Bristow Elementary School. Educating the young of today is an important venue of the Ol’ Blue, USA team, as these students will make our highways safer tomorrow. Warren County Community Services, Warren Kentucky Sheriffs Department and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement hosted the event.

    While students stretch to see the demonstration in progress, RJ Taylor is setting up the vehicles that will highlight the blind spots around large vehicles. The Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement car is 33 feet from ‘Ol’ Blue’s front bumper before you can see the cars “brake lights”. The Sheriff’s car on the left side of ‘Ol’ Blue’ is in the “blind spot” and can only be seen in ‘Ol’ Blue’s small 5 inch mirror.

    As the teacher is given instruction how to assist a student into the rig, look under the front left tire of ‘Ol’ Blue’. Here you will see a “portable scale.” By placing the front left tire of ‘Ol’ Blue’ on the scale, the reading will be 6000 pounds for the front axle weight of that side. The cruiser that is along side ‘Ol’ Blue’ has a full body weight of 4000 pounds. Just the one side of ‘Ol’ Blue’ is 1.5 times the weight of the full cruiser weight.

    Assisting with the “Big Wheels, Little Kids” Program were:
    Sgt. Brent Brown and Deputy Marty Pinet with Warren County Sheriff’s Department
    Officer George Offutt with Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement
    Ms. Beverly Steele, Asst. Coordinator with Warren County Community Services

    Under the Ol’ Blue, USA program, “Big Wheels, Little Kids” school visitation program takes ‘Ol’ Blue’ to schools to give students an up close and personal view of the safety considerations around large vehicles, car drivers, bicycles, and pedestrians.
