EDUCATING: Teaching kids about safety around the big rigs is what this made-to-scale electrically powered tractor-trailer is designed to do. Donated by the Windsor Transportation Club, and paid for though advertising by WTC members including carriers and shippers, it promotes child safety and awareness around the big rigs in the real world, especially in Windsor where 10,000-plus trucks per day come through the city. According to Doug Fitzpatrick (pictured above) Chair of the WTC's 18 Wheels for Safety campaign and sales and marketing regional manager at Laser Transport Inc., too often truckers "get a bad rap" when in fact only two per cent of all road accidents involve trucks and nine times out of 10 motorists are at fault.

TORONTO, Ont. – With just over three months to go before the opening of Truck World 2004, exhibit sales have already exceeded expectations.
Truck World is on target to have more than 500 exhibitors covering nearly 300,000 square-feet of floor space, said show manager Mark Cusack.
More than 15,000 trucking professionals are expected to attend the three-day event, to be held at the International Centre in Toronto April 22 through 24.
Cusack credits the change in venue and dates for the success of the show.
“The International Centre is five minutes away from Pearson International Airport and near all major highways,” said Cusack.
“Add the convenient location to new spring dates – which will offer exhibitors the ideal opportunity to unveil and showcase their new product lines – and you have a winning combination.”
