Share the Road vehicle comes to the rescue in Katrina's wake
Oct 1, 2005 12:00 PM
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) and Mack Trucks Inc unveiled a new custom-designed truck and trailer that will tour the nation as part of the ATA's “Share the Road” highway safety program. This custom truck and trailer were donated by Mack, via its Mack Leasing System, and GE Trailer Services, respectively.
After a safety demonstration to instruct drivers on sharing the road with commercial vehicles, the custom truck and trailer's first stop was the Hurricane Katrina disaster area with critically needed relief supplies from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. The shipment consisted of 1,176 cases of bottled water delivered to Waveland MS, where the worst of the devastation occurred in the state, and the Mississippi Emergency Management Administration in Jackson MS.
