Peggy Fisher's article about the TMC (The Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Associations) task force in the Sept. 30 issue was very interesting. I serve on the task force and believe in the important work they are doing. The Tire Retread Information Bureau intends to distribute the materials being generated by the task force as ``another weapon in our arsenal'' in our battle to educate the motoring public about the real causes of rubber on the road.
TRIB also promotes proper tire maintenance through the use of our ``Don't thump 'em. Pump 'em'' labels, our ``Dispelling myths about rubber on the road'' video and our ``Rubber on the road, issues & answers'' booklet. TRIB distributes thousands of these items to truckers and government agencies each year. TRIB members receive these materials free on a regular basis.
Other retreaders and tire dealers may purchase these materials at very nominal prices. For ordering information and samples of the ``Don't Thump 'Em'' labels, call toll free: (888) 473-8732.
