Half a century looks pretty good on Western Star. The truck OEM, which company president Kelley Platt likes to tout as "the last of the custom truck builders," has hit the half-century mark and celebrated with a press event in Phoenix, Arizona, to unveil a host of equipment upgrades and present the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association a new Model 5700XE tractor to use in its efforts to promote both owner-operators and the trucking industry at large.

Western Star presented the Owner-Operators Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) with a new Western Star 5700XE Thursday at the truck maker’s 50th anniversary event in Phoenix. The tractor, the third such truck donated by Western Star to the driver’s association, will be used with OOIDA’s “Spirit of the American Trucker” tour trailer.

The Western Star truck brand turns 50 this year, which seems improbable, given the truck maker’s humble Canadian roots.

The company was launched by White Motor Company in Kelowna, B.C. in 1967 to serve the needs of the logging industry. White Western Stars soon found a home in the oilpatch, the construction and mining industries, and in other off-road sectors. Its claim to fame was that it was a custom-built truck, made to order.

Victoria's first protected bike lane is on track to officially open on May 1.

The bike lane is along Pandora Avenue from the 500 block near Wharf Street moving east and ending at Cook Street. It includes more than a kilometre of two-way, physically protected bike lanes with new traffic signals for bikes.

Back in the day, when Andy Blair served as a Department of Transportation (DOT) officer, he used the North American Standard Out of Service Criteria book to write tickets and place trucks out of service (OOS) during roadside inspections.

Now, he’s urging fleets and their drivers use the book as a tool to help keep their trucks in service during inspection season – especially where cargo securement is concerned.
