"I just wanted to tell you Thanks for all of the help and standing by during the Surprise Visit that we had by D.O.T... I was pretty confident that there would be no issues, but it always helps to have a back-up just in case. There were no writeups at all in our Drug Testing Program or for the company, in general, as a whole."
"I simply could not do my job without their service. Great service in all aspects!"
"Patoka Lake Regional Water & Sewer District would like to recommend the services offered by ITI. They have cleaned up our drivers records, told us what to keep and what not to keep in Drivers Files. ITI does an annual drivers record check for us. ITI also has us in a quarterly random drug and alcohol testing program. They do a real good job for us."
"I have appreciated ITI so much the past four years. Having been new to transportation everyone has been so great in helping me whenever I needed help. I appreciated Mr. Fehrman coming to my office to explain D.O.T. audits, among other things, that I was uncertain about. I also appreciate Nick's help on drug and alcohol tests."
"Just a quick note to say how very satisfied I am with the service provided by ITI. The feature I appreciate the most is the personal service and attention to detail. Many companies offer drug testing and all of the services so vital to our industry. ITI does it on a personal level that far exceeds the competition."
"I would like to say that ITI has been very gracious about early AM time slots when we have them come to our business for drug testing. They always conduct themselves in a very professional manner."
"I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how pleased that our corporation is with the job that ITI has done for us in all the years that they have serviced Greenwood Schools. We have been with Indiana Testing since the evolution of drug testing for Bus Drivers. If I ever need them to come down for random or post-accident drug testing, they would be here as soon as we called."
"Our inspection went great! He had very few recommendations beyond what we expected! He spoke very highly of ITI and felt that I would be in great hands with you guys! I will finish up organizing what we need to do and touch base with you this summer. We are looking forward to the picnic you all are sponsoring next week! Thanks for all your help!"
"Thanks for all your efforts and all the little things you do in working with NOW Courier. They do not go unnoticed. I consider ITI an important strategic partner of ours to help navigate thru the constant regulation changes. I have been pleased with the level of service from you and all of the ITI staff. I look forward to a long term relationship as well as continuing to grow our business together."
The 34 hour restart has reverted back to its original form. A driver can, at anytime, take 34 consecutive hours off duty or take a combination of consecutive hours off duty and sleeper berth time equaling 34 hours and restart the 60 or 70 hour clock. Everything has reverted back to the 34 hour restart which was in effect prior to July 1, 2013.
It will stay in this form until at least September 30, 2015. At that time, it may stay the same, it may revert back to the revised 34 hour restart that went into effect July 1, 2013, or they may develope another rule. Stand by for the confusion.
FMCSA is partnering with CVSA to conduct "OPERATION SAFE DRIVER", a high profile traffic safety education and law enforcement campaign across North America. The campaign kicked off today with a simple message...Nearly ALL crashes are preventable, and safety is a shared responsibility among ALL motorists!
Be courteous and stay alert-never allow yourself to be distracted-and be sure to take extra care when sharing the roads with large trucks and buses!
As a result of the short-term fix for the Highway Trust Fund that Congress passed on July 31, we will not need to implement these cash management procedures at this time. While pleased that Congress took action to avoid the immediate insolvency of the Highway Account this summer, it is disappointing that they merely kicked the can down the road again. This is the tenth surface transportation extension-on top of eighteen short term budget measures--in the last 6 years. There is still no long-tem certainty. Worse still, this latest band-aid expires right as the next construction season begins, setting up another crisis next spring. So in the coming months, the Department will again be required to prepare cash management procedures in anticipation of repeating the same Highway Trust Fund insolvency crisis.
