Trucks and Congestion

December 22, 1991

Mayor Bradley has a point, but then so does the trucking industry. Both sides keep overlooking the common-sense solution!

I drive the freeways (40 miles a day) during peak hours. A large percentage of the trucks and truck-caused accidents are not local pickup and delivery trucks! They are long-haul trucks (carrying hay, chickens, wine, etc.). Restrict freeway access during peak hours to local trucks and issue them plates/decals or permits--whatever works best.

The trucks could still use the freeways making deliveries and pickups. The only restrictive effect would be long-haul trucks entering and leaving the area during peak hours.
