Time to act on transport trucks
The Norval truck blitz has raised yet another concern with the trucking routes that run through the residential areas of Georgetown.
Not only are these vehicles creating traffic congestion, exhaust and noise pollution, this study has confirmed that they are also unsafe.
It is time that Halton Hills protects its citizens by rerouting these vehicles to more major roadways.
With the exception of local deliveries, there is no reason for transport trucks to be traversing the local roadways, many of which are ill-equipped to handle such traffic (e.g., insufficient turning space, steep grades, proximity to residential homes).
If there is anything else that we can do to bring about change in regards to this trucking fiasco then count me in.
