Finally – the voice of reason when it comes to big trucks on the Pattullo

If necessary, give these folks a break on the toll fee, but get them off the bridge.

Re: “Stop trucks on Pattullo,” Letters, The Leader, Feb. 24.

Finally someone has hit the nail on the head with regards to trucks on the Pattullo Bridge.

As a daily commuter over that bridge, I find the comments to be 110 per cent correct, particularly the part about the trucks taking both lanes.

There is a clear large sign at the south end of the bridge about trucks using the right lane only. If these drivers do not feel safe in doing that, then stay off the bridge and use the Port Mann Bridge. Period.

I’m wondering why the traffic authorities are not enforcing this regulation. It’s been going on for about two years now. If necessary, give these folks a break on the toll fee, but get them off the bridge.
