This is a response from my recent Letter to the Editor in the Sarnia Observer…Please see my previous Blog about regulating these cowboy truck drivers…It is obvious this reader is a blinded trucker…He must not travel on the 400 series Hwys in Ontario…Especially 401 and 402 and the 400.
Report bad drivers when you see them Editorial – Saturday, December 23, 2006 @ 09:00
Sir: Re: Letter to the editor from Gregory West, “Regulate the speed of transport trucks” (The Observer, Dec. 15, 2006)
Please get your facts straight. The State of Michigan has changed their speed limit for trucks from 55 mph to 60 mph.
When you encountered these so called “out-of-control” trucks, did you get their plate number and the name of the company they work for and report them to the proper authorities?
I’m not saying there aren’t some truck drivers out there that speed and break the rules, but not all of us are like that. The majority of the “professional” truck drivers out there encounter the same problems you talk about, whether it’s other trucks or cars. Let’s face it, there are a lot of bad drivers on the road. If we report them as we see them, it’s a start. It’s not going to rid us of all the bad drivers, but we can try, one by one, if that’s what it takes.
By the way, our government is already looking into the possibility of installing speed limiters in trucks and setting the limits at 115 kmh (approx. 65 mph).
