Yellow Truck Update, A Small Victory

I have been in contact with a few people regarding the Yellow Truck incident.

I got an email Friday from the Vice President for safety at YRC Worldwide. That is the parent company of Yellow Transportation as well as Roadway, USF and other major trucking companies. This is what he had to say.

Jeff, as a follow up to our last communication, we did send out our monthly corporate wide safety focus memo to all drivers today. It’s titled “Sharing the Road with Bicyclists” and ALL of the tips you provided were used in the communication. All of our facilities will post and discuss this Safety Focus message for the next 4 weeks in order to instill the right behavior with our professional drivers. Thanks again for the insight you provided.

Thanks to Bill for taking this issue seriously. You may have saved someone's life by doing this.

These are the "tips" I provided to them. If anyone has any other ideas they think truck drivers should know, let me know and I will pass them along.
