1. Give Adults a Choice: Stop the Seat Belt Law

There are 31 states that don't require Helmets when riding a motorcycle but we are forced to wear a seat belt when driving a car.

The numbers show that when wearing a seat belt you have a 30% of not getting injured and a 50% of not getting killed and when not wearing a helmet you have a 50% chance of getting a fatal injury to the head.

Children and drivers 21 and younger should wear a seat belt but over 21 should have a choice just like motorcycle drivers have a choice to wear a helmet.

2. Increasing the buffer geometry models of vehicles for ETS2

Most of the players after playing this game distaste for that was very limited ability to convert their models of trucks and trailers for the game, which a lot of people decided to stay with the old versions of the simulator.

@PL
Większość graczy po zagraniu w tą grę czuje niesmak ponieważ bardzo mocno została ograniczona możliwość konwertowania swoich modeli przez co wiele osób postanowiło pozostać przy starszych wersjach symulatora.

4. Boycott Shell Reduce their Gas Prices

The petroleum cartel will never be broken legally. Some have suggested we stop buying gas for a day. That's a joke for the oil companies.

The answer is to select one large company and hurt them globally by using social media around the world. The regular media will never do this.

It's up to vehicle owners.

5. REDUCE Food Truck Regulations in West Palm Beach

The City of West Palm Beach, Florida currently restricts all Mobile Food Vendors from operating in a zone they have designated as Downtown (from Palm Beach Lakes Blvd to Okeechobee Blvd and Flagler Dr to Australian Ave).

The City of West Palm Beach also restricts Mobile Food Vendors from operating closer than one block in proximity to each other, without a special event permit. The current cost for a special event permit is, $50 non-refundable application fee and a minimum of $500 per occasion.

The City of West Palm Beach is currently searching for ADDITIONAL regulations to be placed on mobile food vendors. Ideas such as, having all vendors park in a central location for a tourist attraction and restricting proximity to existing businesses are being proposed.

6. Boris: Install mirrors that save cyclists lives (Petition for Paula)

On April 5th 2011, on a clear afternoon long before rush hour, London cyclist and student Paula Jurek was knocked down and killed by a lorry turning left from Camden Road into St Pancras Way. She was just twenty.

She joins many other cyclists killed or gravely injured in the same circumstances in London, but if you click the image above to sign this petition for Paula, and many others, you can help ensure this doesn't happen again.

Her death could have been prevented by three things, one of which is so cheap and simple it could be done tomorrow.

As Boris Johnson tries to coax more cyclists onto our roads, he must also make the same effort to keep them safe. Here’s how:

1. MIRRORS FOR LORRY DRIVERS: In 2010, Mr Johnson introduced "Trixi" mirrors, mounted at junctions to give lorry drivers greater visibility on their left sides and to prevent these kinds of accidents.

But he installed only 39 of these mirrors for the entire capital.

He said they would be "reviewed", but their effectiveness has already been demonstrated in Europe. In January, he was asked when this review would be available. His answer: "TfL will shortly be discussing the results of the trial… to retain the existing mirrors and to install further mirrors." That was January. Where are the results? Where are the mirrors?

Both lorry drivers and cyclists have agreed the mirrors are a big help. Even the Deputy Chair of London's Transport Committee and one of Mr Johnson's own colleagues, Caroline Pidgeon, says these mirrors are an important part of improving cycle safety. But Boris has stalled.

The mirrors do not cost much to install or maintain, and the process involves no disruption. They save lives. We need more, now.

2. CITY TRAINING FOR LORRY DRIVERS: Lorry drivers cannot always see cyclists. While a few London boroughs have specifically trained lorry drivers to watch for them on the capital’s busy and sometimes narrow roads, most boroughs still haven’t.

3. SAFE CYCLE ROUTES IN CAMDEN: There are few provisions for cyclists in Camden, yet many students and young people bike there every day. Camden's roads are packed and its cyclists need safe cycle lanes and cycle boxes. The junction at which Paula died has only one cycle box. Why? It should have three.

Camden Councillor Paul Braithwaite has been pushing TfL to improve cycling provisions where Paula died. "There are far too many deaths on Camden Road," he says.

7. Stop the Trucks in Vermont Villages

As of December 18, 2010 heavy trucks will be banned again from the interstates in Vermont. The expiration of this bill will cause problems in the villages of Vermont. Trucks will have to travel longer distances to reach their destinations thereby increasing costs.

The villages had enjoyed less trucks going through their neighborhood making it safer for the children, reduced pollution, damages to our homes, and less damage to small roads which cannot take the heavy loads of some trucks.

8. Stop Wagga Council from trying to ban trucks in Tarcutta Main Street

Wagga Wagga City Council has proposed to stop all trucks from parking in the Main St of Tarcutta, NSW post bypass and prohibiting any transport related business from starting within the Village. This is to be passed in their DCP (Development Control Plan).

We need to stop this from happening. Tarcutta has been Australia's own Transport town since trucks started running the Hume Highway.

9. Put a stop to riding in the bed of a truck Unrestrained

In the event of a vehicle crash, any occupants riding in the bed unrestrained will be ejected and this greatly increases the likelihood of traumatic injuries and even death.

It should be forbidden completely to ride in the bed of a truck, without properly being restrained, on public roads to take the mystery or confusion out of this very dangerous activity.

You can purchase seating for the bed of your truck at BedRyder.com, these seat are legal and with keep your passengers safe.

10. Don't Encrypt The OPP System

There have been many times when the O.P.P has called for tow trucks to assist in situations where there is danger to the public due to a traffic hazard, whether it be broken down vehicle or an accident.

During those times, the Tow Truck Drivers are depended upon to remove any vehicles off the road to a safe location so the safety of the public is the first to be taken into consideration.

To get the drivers that drink and drive off the road before any casualties are caused, these individuals (Tow Truck Drivers) dedicate themselves to help the police find the impaired drivers and make our highways safe for the rest of the public.

11. Stop forward motion on transfer station

Proper discussion has not been initiated with the town board, town residents, and BOCC, Road & bridge and county manager and forward motion has begun.

The economic feasibility of this HSS site is not fully researched as the BOCC does not know where the trash will be hauled. Depending on this answer, other sites (specifically Kremmling landfill and Fraser Road and Bridge shop could be more feasible).

There are no regulations in place to insure the community's safety. There are no regulations in place should any regulations be violated with the potential for hazardous health and environmental impacts.

We have been unfairly isolated from the planning process with the above departments. The people of this county should have been involved in this important decision effecting all of our lives.

There are documented examples of other communities transfer stations who do not adhere to maintenance of the facility.

Increased carbon footprint due to truck traffic mileage when traveling large distances to and from Hot Sulphur Springs.

This proposal is in direct conflict with the Grand County Master Plan with the Town of Hot Sulphur Springs on issues of preserving agricultural and ranching views on the east end of the town, and joint development with the county within a three mile area of the town.

There will potentially be a negative impact to the water quality due to the close proximity of the waste transfer station to the Colorado River and the source for the Hot Sulphur Springs municipal water plant.

Negative impact on National Scenic Byway, one of few in the state and country

Negative impact to our community is documented in other communities fights against transfer station. They include, visual, odor, noise, traffic, and ground water issues as listed below:

Truck traffic including leachate and trash escaping from trucks, heavy truck traffic, road infrastructure and damage, and increased noise

Noise pollution with large trucks, the trucks dropping loads that may still be encased in steel dumpsters onto concrete tipping floors which can cause adverse vibration in nearby structures.

Odors escaping from open facility doors and unclean trucks

Falling property values and disease spreading due to external vectors such as bugs, birds, mice, and other vermin

Cumulative impacts on public health and quality of life from noxious odors, water quality contamination, increased external vectors, dust, and truck exhaust

Increased fire hazard involved in storage and transfer of materials

Litter and the resulting reduction of property values from improperly sealed trucks, improperly stored garbage, and from wind when doors are open

Property values will decrease due to above issues

12. Dakar in Australia 2010!

With the cancellation of Dakar 2008 due to terrorist threats, the organisers of the Dakar have to find some new ground.

While Africa will always be the spiritual home of the Dakar, its just not possible in the near future. ASO says they want to explore the deserts of the world, and well, we have 1,371,000 square kilometers of them, and thats just the start of it. With the Dakar heading to South America in 2009, there is a chance they may want to explore other options for the following years.

With over 4 million square kilometers of sand to explore, there is more than enough chance for racers to get lost in the heart of Australia. With the world famous such as Ayers Rock (or Uluru) and the Olgas, there are plenty of unforgettable sights for the media madness of the Dakar. And hey, theres even a pink lake at the bottom of W.A, coincidence, I think not.

Losistics, transport and services all become that much easier in a country that has grown with being remote, not just to each other, but the rest of the world. The language barrier, passports, visas, medicine, water, fuel, everything becomes pretty easy when touring the deserts of Australia. While english isn't everyones first language, I don't know a lot of people who can say Mandarin is even on their list. (China want the Dakar for 09).

Great deserts, great people, great riding, great everything. So come on ASO, there arent too many excuses for not moving to Australia, but there ARE a lot of reasons to move here.

13. No to speed limiter, Non aux limiteurs de vitesse

Since 2005, The Ontario Trucking Association and the Canadian Trucking Alliance are putting pressure on the MTO and many other Provincial agencies to mandate the use of the electronic speed limiter on all heavy trucks over 11,000kg of GWVR.

The reasons given for that range from safety to environment, to leveling the playing field to all the industry. This will affect any truck operating into, out of, and within the Province.

Depuis 2005 l'OTA et l'ACCA metten de la pression sur les divers ministères pour forcer la mise en fonction obligatoire du limiteur de vitesse électronique de tout camions qui opèrent dans, en dehors, et en dedans la Province de l'Ontario.

Les raisons sont variés passant de la sécurité à l'environnement, et pour niveler la compétition.

We the fans of NASCAR {National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing] demand that you do not use the "play-off" point system that is planned for the 2004 Nascar season. We the fans of NASCAR want to have the point system that has been in place from 1975 to the 2003 season to be the only point system used to the championship. The 2003 Busch and Craftsman truck series season championship battles came down to the final laps so it shows that the systems works.

20. Asphalt Plant Halt

A proposed asphalt recycling plant may soon be located in Casitas Springs, CA, if it is not stopped.

This plant will result in pollution to the air as well as increased truck traffic. The average number of truck trips would be 106 per day, and the peak daily number could reach as high as 672.

Air quality will be impacted by the truck traffic as well as emissions from the actual operation, including hazardous particulate matter.

The surrounding area is known for its clean air and beautiful mountain surroundings.
