Early Tues morning, a man was contemplating taking his life by jumping off the highway overpass on I-696.
13 heroic Michigan truckers stopped their vehicles and lined up under the bridge creating both a wall and a makeshift platform to shorten the fall if the man decided to jump.
Amazing teamwork from all prevented a life from being lost. We at TruckLenders USA take our hats off to these fine 13 trucks and their drivers. You are all an amazing symbol of heroic, teamwork, and pride.

California Clean Air Plan Calls for Further NOx, PM Reductions
May 20, 2016
By Deborah Lockridge
As part of a broad-reaching clean air program, California has proposed a low-NOx engine standard for heavy trucks. Another part of its plan is to push the Environmental Protection Agency for a nationwide low-NOx engine standard. But truck and engine makers have said in the past that striving for low NOx in diesels could conflict with federal efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by increasing fuel economy.
The California Air Resources Board’s Proposed 2016 State Strategy for the State Implementation Plan (State SIP Strategy) released this week describes proposed measures needed to meet federal ozone and PM2.5 standards over the next 15 years.
Among its proposed measures is a Low-NOx Engine Standard to be developed between 2017 and 2019 with implementation starting in 2023. The goal, it said, is to introduce near-zero-emission engine technologies to lower oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions from on-road heavy-duty vehicles.
At an altitude of 6,742 feet in the breathtaking Dolomite Mountains, this is a room with an unbeatable view.
The Starlight Room near Cortina is set on a pair of skis for easy mobility, and offers unobstructed views of the spectacular Unesco World Natural Heritage Nature site for 300 euros (£234) a night.
With just glass walls separating the snug cabin's bed from the rolling snowcapped hills, the Italian haven is a perfect retreat for couples or solo travellers looking for an incredible private viewing of the exotic mountainous region and the stars above.
Inside, the cabin houses necessities for a cosy night under the stars, including a heater and an adjustable bed.
There is even a flatscreen television that plays timelapse images of the Dolomites, if the real thing doesn't prove spectacular enough.
One of the drawbacks to the property is the lack of a bathroom, so a quick dash outside in the cold landscape may be needed during a stay.
Complimentary dinner and breakfast are provided to sustain you from dawn until dusk.
