Michelin gives to safety truck

March 25, 2004

Michelin Americas Truck Tires (MATT) has donated $25,000 to Ol' Blue U.S.A., a vintage truck that hauls a billboard promoting large vehicle safety.

The 53-year-old truck stops at schools throughout the country and its crew holds simulated truck inspections at trade shows and truck stops.

"We salute the efforts of Ol' Blue to educate the public, especially young people, about vehicle safety and how to avoid accidents," says Marc Leferriere, MATT vice president of marketing.
