IT IS YOUR RIGHT
My personal Email to my MPP for Sarnia, Ontario:
First Sarnia Place

As a forty year veteran of highway 401 and 402 driving, I have to ask
why Ontario still allows transport trucks to travel at the accepted
highway speed of 120 kph?
As one who works in Toronto, you must see this horrendous driving act
on the 402 and 401 of aggressive transport truck drivers who
constantly run over the speed limit and block traffic for miles when
they constantly attempt to pass other vehicles on hills.
All of this causes preventable accidents.
In Michigan State the Americans have legislated their trucks to travel
no faster than 80 kph, a speed that is constantly patrolled by the
police. It certainly makes for a much safer drive and a pleasant
We need safer highways. Regulating the speed to 80 kph, for transport
trucks, is a positive move towards making Ontario highways a very much
safer place to travel.
Due to the past and recent accidents on the 402 and 401, caused by
aggressive speeding transport trucks passing vehicles that choose to
travel the regulated speed limits, is the Liberal Government looking
into the unsafe state of our major highways due to the
“out-of-control” truck transport drivers?
Here are some facts to review:
A crash between two transport trucks early Thursday morning
on Highway 401 has left one man dead and slowed traffic on one
of the country’s busiest highways.

There are so many stories about the horrendous highway hazards
caused by racing, raging, out-of-control transport drivers, who have
taken complete control over all lanes on our highways, that we do not
have enough time to list most of them. However, why not take a
moment and complain…?
Again, it is our right to write our Elected Officials, so why not? It is easy…
