► Volvo Trucks boosts safety on slippery winter roads
For trucks with drawbar trailers, slippery winter roads and downhill
gradients represent a tough challenge for even the most skilled of drivers.
There is always the risk of the rig becoming unstable and, in the
worst-case scenario, starting to jack-knife. Volvo Trucks has now developed
a solution that significantly improves safety.
In order to minimise the risk of this type of situation and potential
accidents, Volvo Trucks has developed a system known as Stretch Brake that
automatically retards the trailer and straightens up the rig on slippery
Ice storm insanity!

Freezing rain 'black ice' in Springfield, Illinois - January 27, 2013
Freezing rain creates a thin hard-to-see layer of very slick ice on the
streets and roads of Springfield, Illinois on Sunday, January 27, 2013.
Downtown streets were treacherous. Here, cars have difficulty stopping for
traffic lights at intersections. Some cars cannot stop and run red lights,
thankfully not hitting cross traffic. Learn more about how to stay safe on

Transfer-Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer-dump
competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a
few glitches, it was still a good show.
For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a
system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing
behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck
in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a
button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without
starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter
motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up.
I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called,
but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this
video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.
