Hi, my name is 'Ol' Blue'« and I am a truck. I never want to hurt you so
it is very, very important that you learn what to do to be safe when you are around big vehicles like me.
Now that includes buses, tractors, and motor homes too!
How big am I you ask? I weigh 80,000 pounds, and I am 75 feet long, 8 feet 6 in. wide and 13 feet 6 in.
tall, and if RJ is paying attention and has to stop quickly at 55 mph ... it will take him 1 & 1/2 football fields
(450 feet) to stop me from rolling along.
