Introducing New International LT Series

  • Advanced integration of Navistar N13 Engine utilizing controls and high efficiency combustion.
  • Reduction in aerodynamic drag through replacement of Cab and hood-mounted mirrors with a series of cameras and interior-mounted monitors, which also yield equal or better indirect vision for the driver.
  • A new LED headlamp system that reduces lamp size for a more aerodynamic shape and cuts electrical power requirements by greater than 80 percent, while improving luminous output and light color for improved night-time direct driver vision and reduced driver fatigue.
  • An all-new shape with a sloped windshield and wedged cab for improved aerodynamics. Innovative use of lighter-weight carbon-fiber panels in the upper body, roof headers, back panel, and dash panel.
  • A hybrid front suspension and lightweight rear suspension that leverages lightweight alloys with composite materials, reducing weight and enabling an electronic ride height management system, which provides dynamic ride height and pitch control for improved aerodynamics, Aerodynamic improvements that reduce the trailer's drag coefficient by more than 30 percent.

Truckers Safe Trips

How can truckers, and their employers, ensure a safe trip each tine they drive?

  • Set reasonable hours of service. A tired driver is unsafe! There are many excuses as to why a driver should be allowed to run to exhaustion; all are indefensible.
  • Complete pre-trip inspections. Mechanical equipment fails, usually in predictable fashion and often at the worst possible time. Checking on your rig's tires, brakes, and other equipment before your ride is not only required, it's critical.
  • Ensure drivers are fit for duty. Incapacitating illness or impairment can interfere with a driver's ability to do the job safely. Sleep apnea is a particularly troubling problem for too many drivers.
  • Embrace automation and driver-assist technology. Full automation, despite the marketing hype, is still some distance away - maybe very far away. Speed control, adaptive braking, stability control, and advanced driver-assist safety features such as collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning, are currently available and make a big difference in mitigating driver mistakes. As the aviation industry has embraced pilot-assisting technologies, it's become remarkably safer; the trucking industry could learn from this willingness to use available automation tools in its operations.
ED'S CORNER

The 1969 Ryder Cup at the Royal Birkdale Club in Southport, England, was tied as the final pair, the United States' Jack Nicklaus and England's Tony Jacklin, teed off on the 18th. Nicklaus, who was playing in his first Ryder Cup, sank his four-foot par putt, and before Jacklin could address his two-foot par putt to tie, reached down and picked up his opponent's ball marker. It was a sporting gesture by Nicklaus, who didn't want to put Jacklin through the pressure of making the "gimmie" before thousands of British fans.

By conceding the putt, Nicklaus ensured that the competition would end in a tie for the first time in its 42-year history. "I don't think you would have missed that putt, but in these circumstances I would never give you the opportunity." Nicklaus told Jacklin. While the United States, which had won the previous 10 events, retained the Ryder Cup with the tie, team captain Sam Snead reportedly was happy with Nicklaus's decision.
