Full story: Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Trucks may soon be barred from using the left lane on nearly the entire length of Interstates 20 and 30 in Tarrant, Dallas and surrounding counties.

UNFRIGGINBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! Just so you understand the full ramifications of your theory 1)If you take trucks out of the left lane then you are going to have a massive amount of congestion at onramps and offramps thereby causing even more accidents due to thefact that the average motorist doesnt know how to drive worth a damn. 2) Putting all the freight on the rails wont work because the only thing slower than the post office is the railroad.Plus the trains dont deliver to WAL MART.Consider the fact that the cost of products is directly related to cost of shipping and the rail is not the cheapest way to go.When you start having to pay $10 for a gallon of milk then you will start whining your butt off. IF YOU GOT IT A TRUCK BROUGHT IT is not just a slogan it is a fact of life
too bad most people dont realize it
