Come and enjoy lunch and learn about: Safety Improvement & Innovation!
The Scapellato & Company (Jodie and Jim) will be hosting a lunch and learn program on March 10th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. This is not a sales program; there is nothing to buy. Rather, it is strictly a safety program on a unique method to help truck drivers prevent rear end crashes into their tractor-trailer rig by other vehicles while stopped in the travel lane or shoulder of a roadway.
If safety is truly your # 1 priority, it is worth your time and effort to have lunch and see and hear what Jim Scapellato has to say. Jim Scapellato was formerly the Director of Research and Standards with the FHWA (now FMCSA). He was responsible for writing many of the interstate trucking rules we operate under today such as CDL, alcohol and drug testing, conspicuity, rear impact guards, medical qualifications, etc. He also served as the Director of Federal Enforcement Policy and Training, MCSAP grant program, and Hazardous Materials program. Prior to Washington D.C, Jim was the Southeast Regional Counsel in Atlanta, Georgia and prosecuted more than 3,000 motor carrier and driver cases for violations of interstate trucking rules but now helps carriers get their safety ratings upgraded and civil penalty claims dismissed or lowered.
The program will allow time for questions and answers and Jim and Jodie will be available after the program to meet with you. Jim will also be speaking briefly at the safety & maintenance council meeting later in the afternoon.
Please come and remember to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (602) 850-6003.

Tue24May20168:00 amArizona Trucking Association
Ten years ago, motor carriers doing business in California could be confident they were legally compliant if their drivers followed DOT Hours of Service regulations. This is no longer the case, and two years ago the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held federal trucking law did not preempt California employment laws. Consequently, there have been waves of litigation against out-of-state motor carriers with drivers in California, resulting in multi-million dollar verdicts, concerning:
- California’s meal and rest break laws, governing when and for how long breaks must be provided and recorded;
- California’s piece-rate law, requiring each task to be separately paid at minimum wage or above; and
- California’s independent contractor laws, making it increasingly difficult to use ICs in California
Richard Rahm and Greg Coulter, Littler Mendelson, employment law co-counsel for the California Trucking Association, will discuss strategies for avoiding the legal pitfalls for any motor carrier with drivers in the Golden State.
RSVP to SMCdougall@littler.com or 816.772.0622.

A special presentation for employers, human resource professionals, safety professionals and key executive management. Currently, there are four states that have passed the sale and use of marijuana for recreational use. Another four states have initiatives out for signatures that would replicate these changes in state laws for the November 2016 ballot. Arizona is one of those states. Since the passing of Amendment 64 in Colorado, states have been keeping their eye on the outcomes. Those that would like to see marijuana legalized have also used Colorado as the model state to reform future initiatives for other states.
The people of Arizona will likely be asked to vote yay or nah to legalize marijuana for recreational use this November. It is important that employers are well informed on what is in this initiative NOW, how the Colorado experiment has impacted employers and how Arizona's proposed language will directly affect the workplace.
Gina Kesler, President of D & A Experts, along with special guest from Colorado, Jo McGuire, President of Five Minutes of Courage, request your attendance as they take an in-depth look at the initiative and evaluate how it impacts employers, employees and business in Arizona.

Recap meeting of 2017 TDC Competition
ATA has once again been invited by the Department of Public Safety to participate in the Annual Roadcheck event. Participants are able to observe inspections alongside officers at the designated areas as well as do ride-a-longs with officers.
This is a perfect opportunity to send your management staff, safety coordinators, technicians or other operational personnel to see first hand how inspections are done on a daily basis and learn how to improve your practices to become safer truckers!
The emphasis this year is cargo securement. According to CVSA, checking cargo securement is always a part of roadside inspections, CVSA is highlighting cargo securement as a reminder to drivers and carriers.
Participation form and civilian observer applications - please return to Karen Nesta by May 17th.

The Ride-a-Long program has been reduced to 20 participants so we encourage you to send your form in as soon as possible.

Safety is the top priority in the trucking industry today.
As you may know, the Arizona Transportation Education Foundation (ATEF), the ATA’s 501c(3), sponsors two major safety programs dedicated to educating the driving public on how to safety drive around a commercial vehicle. The first program called “Share the Road” is geared towards the general public. “Share the Road” events usually happen at large public gatherings like: Glendale’s Touch-a-Truck, TMC’s Be Safe Saturday, RoadCheck, etc. Our “Teens and Trucks” program, in partnership with DPS, generally takes place at high schools and middle schools and is geared towards teens just learning to drive.
Both programs are huge successes for the ATA and ATEF. Educating drivers about how to operate safely around large commercial vehicle benefits everyone!
Because these great programs are so successful, we have increased the number of events we do year over year. As a result, we need to recruit more companies to participate.
This is a great problem to have! The more people we can educate, the safer our roads will become… its as simple as that.
Therefore, I invite all carrier members to join us for a very special meeting with DPS Sergeant Corey Smith and Trooper Ed Warren to go over the Teens and Trucks school program!!
Thursday - July 27th - 11:30am to 1:00pm
Lunch will be provided!
Learn how you can help make a difference by participating with the Teens and Trucks School program. Additionally, for those of you who have participated in the past, there will be additional information regarding some changes we are making to the program for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 semesters.

Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017, is Brake Safety Day, an enforcement and compliance campaign where law enforcement agencies across North America will conduct inspections on large trucks and buses to identify out-of-adjustment brakes, and brake-system and antilock braking system (ABS) violations as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Airbrake Program.
