Three of five entries submitted by Truck News took home hardware at the recent Truck Writers of North America (TWNA) communications awards banquet.
Executive editor James Menzies won a gold award in the News category for his entry Ontario introduces speed limiter legislation, appearing in the May, 2008 edition.
The article focused on Ontario’s controversial Bill 41, which mechanically limits truck speeds to 105 km/h.
Menzies also won a silver award in the Environmental/Regulatory category for his piece California Nightmares, which explored what Canadian carriers need to know about complying with California’s stringent anti-idling restrictions.
And Joanne Ritchie, executive director of the Owner-Operators’ Business Association of Canada (OBAC) won a silver award in the Column category for her monthly column Voice of the Owner/Operator.
Since the awards’ inception in 2003, Truck News, Truck West and MotorTruck Fleet Executive have won 26 TWNA Communications awards – more than any other Canadian publisher.
