The travel plaza industry plans to distribute information about missing children in truck stops nationally, the truck stop trade group NATSO Inc. said. The group will collaborate with the Amber Alert program to distribute its information.
Missing children will be identified on posters, electronic displays and signs to nearly 1,150 stops, as well as posting children’s identities on the trade group’s website at NATSOFoundation.org.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
