Don and Debbe Morrow have put together a state-to-state guide for professional
drivers. The Morrows, OOIDA members from Eau Claire, WI, haul freight all
over the country, so they know firsthand how laws differ from state to
state. They simply have pulled together all the state-to-state information
to create "For the Long Haul: A State to State Guide for Professional Drivers."
book is jam-packed with a wealth of information that truckers need when
crossing state lines. It's hard to believe Don and Debbe fit it all on
92 pages, but it's all there in 12 maps and detailed text sections on each
state - speed limits, road classifications, truck routes, length, width
and weight limits, trip permit requirements, chain laws, spring thaw restrictions
and states with kingpin to rear axle requirements.
Soendker, managing editor of Land Line, recommends the book as "a valuable
tool for truckers." "For the Long Haul" sells for $14.95. Ask for the book
