Werner Enterprises recently introduced a three-tiered Million Mile Safe Driver Truck Program designed to recognize Werner drivers who have achieved safe driving milestones of 1, 2 or 3 million miles with new trucks and accessories.
Werner s new program offers professional drivers the opportunity to order new trucks equipped with an APU with 110-volt service and assorted accessories available depending on the safe driving milestone achieved. Drivers with 1 million safe driving miles at Werner are eligible to order a new truck with a special decal package, while drivers with 2 or 3 million safe driving miles at Werner also can choose from accessory packages and premium upgrades.
New trucks ordered within this program will feature a light or dark blue exterior and remain with the driver until the equipment is removed from the fleet. Werner s 2 and 3 million mile drivers are anticipated to receive their new trucks the first half of 2014, with 1 million mile drivers following soon after. Werner currently has approximately 570 professional drivers eligible for this program. Overall, more than 1,500 professional Werner drivers have achieved 1 million or more safe driving miles.

I was on my way to an appointment on the Upper West Side yesterday, when I decided to drop in to say hello to Lynn Dell at Off Broadway1. You’d never be able to guess that she broke her foot a couple of days ago, as she looked gorgeous as ever in an orange turban and brand new embellished cotton tunic.
17 year old car owner/driver needs a proper car insurance policy
With the number of young car drivers growing every day, there is a need for a specific car insurance policy, which caters to 17-year-old drivers, having their own cars.
While we have the figures showing that the younger drivers being inexperienced are involved in more car and other accidents, than the older drivers. However, it cannot be said for the whole lot of young drivers, particularly the 17-year-old car drivers. At the same time, there is a greater need to educate the young car drivers including 17-year-old drivers to search for a comprehensive and proper car insurance policy that suits them best.
Certain insurance brokers may offer an insurance policy that has every stuff in it and ultimately it may not prove useful to the 17-year-old car driver, as there may be nanny benefits offered with the car insurance policy, which are not at required by the young driver.
The law should be very stringent with regard to the car insurance policy, particularly for the 17-year-old car drivers having their own cars. The law has to ensure that a 17-year-old car driver has a proper and well-documented car insurance policy, before he takes on the wheels and goes off to the road for a drive. Certain countries have fixed penalties for not having a proper car insurance policy by the 17-year-old car driver. In Great Britain the penalty for not having proper car insurance is a six point fine. This means in real terms that a 17-year-old car driver has to appear for a retest as their license gets revoked due to this offense.
Young car drivers, especially 17-year-old drivers and till the age of 25 years, are deemed as high-risk drivers. This means that the chances of more accidents are higher with this age group of drivers. Hence, most of the insurance companies add up their costs to quote a higher price for a 17-year-old car driver to have the car properly insured.
However, there are many instances where we can find that the insurance brokers and companies have a genuine case to put up the prices, as 17-year-old car insurance will have to meet the excess claims from the 17-year-old drivers due to their inefficient handling of the vehicle and its maintenance..But at the same time there are certain car insurance companies who provide 17-year-old car insurance at cheaper and reasonable prices, as they are specialists in the field of providing car insurance policies to the young drivers only, like a 17-year-old driver.
One needs to do a online search for such companies and here is the link to one website that can help
. /17-year-old-driver-auto-insurance.htmDuring the course of learning car driving, a 17-year-old car driver is taught to drive slowly and that too a older vehicle, so that the driving skills get perfect and the 17 year car insurance policy is also cheaper to get. Another web site address given here can be of much help in this direction.
In Netherlands, we can find many Dutch companies that can give a proper autoVerzekering and the companies like the following Dutch website can prove very useful
According to a report by Punch, a heavy loaded 40-foot container fell on a government meat van yesterday June 6th, crushing a passerby and wounding several others. The sad event took place at Ikeja Along Bus Stop on Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway in Lagos. Eyewitnesses said the truck had swerved off the road to avoid colliding with some policemen, who were chasing a motorcycle rider, before the incident occurred around 9am. The victim, identified as Samuel Ogunnaike, was an employee of a popular phone dealer in Computer Village, Ikeja, and was on his way to the office when he met his death. Any hope that he could survive the accident was dashed after he was trapped for about four hours before his body was retrieved from the wreckage. (Punch)

If you’ve never been to a big-rig show, put it on your to-do list. And if you can choose only one show to get to, it should be the annual Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. Not only will you see all the newest and biggest trucks allowed on U.S. roads, but it also offers seminars, technology, people watching and more show-and-shine beauties than your eyeballs can handle.
We attended this year’s show in March and thought you might like to see all the massive and monster trucks we found on the floor and in the parking lot. These are just some of the highlights of the cool stuff we saw. To get the full experience sights, smells and tastes you have to attend MATS yourself.
Customized big rigs are what this show is all about, but in a sea of seats, wheels, tires, service parts and other accessories it was nice to see this customized International LoneStar with modified headlights, lightweight body panels and blacked-out rims.
MATS is also about celebrities, albeit a different kind of trucker celebrity. Lisa Kelly began her professional driving career on the History Channel’s “Ice Road Truckers,” then launched into superstardom with the “IRT Deadliest Roads” spinoff. At the show she was mobbed by flustered middle-aged, balding men and tons of worshipping youngsters.
This customized Volvo pickup truck conversion was built in Dublin, Va., just 382 miles away from Louisville at the New River Assembly Plant. The truck has a 195-inch wheelbase, a 500-horsepower D13 Volvo under the hood, a Meritor RS 23186 rear axle with HD airbags and a custom crew-cab interior that includes a plasma TV, rear and side-view cameras, and a refrigerator built into custom cabinets.
As you might imagine, for folks who make their living sitting down, driver and passenger air-suspended seats are important to test. Add to that the millions of square feet attendees have to walk (close to six miles to see the entire show) and there was a lot of seat testing going on for weary showgoers.
This Freightliner Pikes Peak race truck is owned by Mike Ryan Motorsports from Santa Clarita, Calif., and although this truck has had several successful runs in the mountains of Colorado, what Ryan really wants to do is get his ChumpTrucks big-rig racing series off the ground. Look for an eight-track U.S. series to start in 2014. For more information, go to www.chumptruck.com3.
All of the big engine companies have huge displays at MATS: Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Power Stroke, Duramax, Volvo and International. The most interesting future technology was in the Cummins booth, where it showed a compact next-generation two-stage turbo that looked to be on par with the high-tech turbos from Audi and Porsche. Cummins was promoting a motor generator for big-rig hybrid use that could, depending on the application, save as much as 40 percent on fuel costs. No applications for either technology has been announced.
The real show at MATS is out back at the PKY Truck Beauty Championship, where hundreds of chromed and polished trucks are on display in 25 different categories. Trucks with names like Bulldog Express, Liquid Motion, Black Menace, Smooth Move and Wild Child were on display for expert judging as well as gawking by show attendees.
