Here’s an idea for you. What would happen if the Department of Transportation banned all vehicles with 3 or more axles on Freeways and Expressways from 8am to 9am and from 5pm to 6pm during the work week? This would certainly reduce the amount of traffic on freeways during peak commuting hours, but would it have a negative economical impact on the people who drive these vehicles and the companies that own them?
Commuters would no longer see large semi trucks, tractor trailers and heavy machinery vehicles on the roads during the two most highly trafficked hours of travel. For safety purposes, fire trucks, emergency service vehicles and military vehicles would be exempt from the law.
Does this sound like a good idea to you? What are your arguments for and against? Now remember: this is not a bill or a law, it’s just an idea from your friends at I Drive Safely, the makers of the best Online Traffic School Course in the Country. However, if you feel like this is a good idea, you can contact members of you Senate Transportation and Housing Committee and request their support. What if this actually happened?
