  1. Excellent news safety first , on account of the harsh north American temperatures , roads are full of unexpected weather conditions especially in mountain areas , now winter is here . Everybody knows that semi trailers are equipped with LED lights , which do not generate heat , on winter conditions the lights are hidden by acuminated snow , Voltflex Innovations , has the answer with their Intelligent Heated LEDs , all Canadian trailer manufacturers should consider , to equip trailers with this safety feature …

  2. Just wanted to say I think this is a great idea. In my day the professional truckers were a group to rely on, courteous professionals. They drove a steady speed, rarely changed lanes, never speed – not like the race track I see out there today. Many I see are very young having no real idea what it will take to stop their 18 wheeler and that’s why we find so many with spilled loads and buried in the ditches.Not sure what the answer is but this sounds like a really good start. My compliment to organizers.
