In fact, it’s part of

their motto: “Driven

to be the Best; Driven by

the Best; for 25 years”. In this

day and age where drivers are in short supply,

JK Hackl takes pride in selecting only the best

qualified drivers.

JK Hackl has been in business now for over

25 years. Part of that success stems

from the owner’s experience as

a driver himself. Jerry Hackl

started as an owner operator

over 40 years ago. Long

ago he learned the pillars

to success. Those

pillars are: Customer

care, Respect, Quality

Equipment, and Vision.

Without our customers

we are nothing. From

trait that seems to be lacking in the World...

At JK Hackl, we all do our best to show that

respect every day. Many people don’t know how

difficult a trucker’s life is, or how hard it is for

their family. They truly are unsung heroes. It’s

important for the public to give them the credit

they deserve.

Jerry Hackl learned early on about how

important quality equipment is. The

only people making money when

equipment breaks down are the

repair shops. No driver likes

sitting & no customer likes

waiting. This is why we

strive to maintain top of

the line equipment.

This industry has

seen its ups and downs

and plenty of changes

inevitable, but prepare for it. Ultimately our goal

is to plan ahead & to anticipate the challenges

TCA President John Lyboldt Wins

NAMAD Diversity Award

Truckload Carriers

Association President

John Lyboldt has

been awarded the

2016 Diversity

Advocacy Award

from the National

Association of

Minority Automobile

Dealers (NAMAD).

The award was

presented during the John Lyboldt

organization’s annual

membership meeting in Miami, Florida.

The award stems from Lyboldt’s previous

employment as senior vice president, dealer

services, for the National Automobile

Dealers Association,

an organization that

represents franchised

new car and truck dealers,

their managers and their

employees.

Before that, he spent 17

years as the president and CEO of the Rochester

Automobile Dealers Association in Rochester,

New York. He came to TCA in December of

2015.

“This award is in recognition of John’s

courage, character, and consistency in assisting

ethnic minority dealers to succeed in the

automobile industry,” said Damon Lester,

president of NAMAD.

Helping to shape the future for minorities is a

cause that Lyboldt says he has been passionate

about for many years.

“Individuals who are honored with awards

like this are doing something they see as

important and meaningful. I know John did not

expect gratitude, recognition, or a pat on the

back. But from TCA’s perspective, hearing that

he has been honored in this way reconfirms that

we made the right decision in selecting him

to lead our organization,” said TCA Chairman

Russell Stubbs.

Highway Safety Group: Turning

Off Red-Light Cameras Can Be

Deadly

Red-light cameras are widely hated, but a

new study says getting rid of them can have

fatal consequences.

Traffic deaths from red-light-running crashes

go up by nearly a third after cities turn off

cameras designed to catch motorists in the act,

according to a study by the Insurance Institute

for Highway Safety. The institute is funded by

auto insurers.

While cities continue to add cameras at

intersections with traffic signals, at least 158

communities have ended their red-light camera

programs in the past five years, the study said.

Researchers compared trends in annual crash

rates in 14 cities that had ended their camera

programs with those in 29 cities in the same

regions that continued their camera programs.

They found that, after adjusting for other

factors, red-light-running crashes went up 30

percent.

Further, all types of crashes at intersections

with traffic signals went up 16 percent. That

finding suggests that red-light cameras deter

other behavior

by motorists, not

just red-light

running, said

Wen Hu, coauthor

of the

study.

A second

part of the

study compared

fatal red-lightrunning

crashes

in 57 cities with

camera programs

to 33 cities that haven’t introduced cameras,

finding that the rate of such crashes was 21

percent lower in cities with cameras. The rate of

all types of crashes at intersections with traffic

signals was 14 percent lower when cameras

were present.

“Debates over automated enforcement often

center on the hassle of getting a ticket and

paying a fine,” said the institute’s president,

Adrian Lund. “It’s important to remember that

there are hundreds of people walking around

who wouldn’t be here if not for red-light

cameras.”

Will and Delia Moon Receive the

2016 Gary King Award

Trucker Buddy International has selected

Will Moon and Delia Moon Meier as well as

all the employees for the Iowa 80 Group to

receive the 2016 Gary King Award presented

at the latest Walcott Trucker’s Jamboree in

Walcott, Iowa. Presenting the award was

Randy Schwartzenburg

of Trucker

Buddy.

The

award is

given

to people

whom

have had an

impact on the

trucking industry

and Trucker Buddy

International. The

Gary King Memorial

Award is given each at

the Walcott Jamboree and

named for the Founder of

Trucker Buddy.

The Moon family has been involved

in the trucking industry for many years

beginning with their father Bill Moon who

started Iowa 80 in 1964. Over the years

Iowa 80 has grown into a major player with

the addition of multiple truck stops and

the popular Cat Scale system. The Iowa 80

Group has supported Trucker Buddy not

only financially but provided the leadership

of Heather DeBaille, the Marketing Manager

at Iowa 80 Group / CAT Scale Company

as a valuable board of director member for

Trucker Buddy.

“Thank you so much for honoring us with

the Gary King Memorial Award! What a

giant surprise for us. We’ve always loved

the Trucker Buddy program as we think it is

important to tell kids about how important

truckers and trucking is to each one of us,

to explain to kids

that the economy is

actually them, it isn’t

just on TV or just

in Washington. It is

also fun. Every kid

wants to be a trucker

at some point and

the opportunity that

Trucker Buddy gives them to actually

know a trucker and see an actual semi is

just really cool. One of my favorite things

is to show off the Iowa 80 Truckstop. It is

so fun to see their minds change and open

up to us, I can only image how rewarding it

is for truckers to be able to share their lives

with a classroom of kids. I wish you many

more years of success as you continue this

important program. Thank you.” - Delia

Moon Meier and Will Moon, Iowa 80

Truckstop Group.
