‘Sharing Road With Truckers’

Finally, someone is noticing the frightening road hazards caused by truckers.

I frequently travel Highway 99 and the vast majority of the trucks are a real menace to all other drivers trying to drive safely and stay within the speed limit.

Yet, I have never seen a single truck being stopped by any law enforcement vehicles. In fact, on my last three trips to Placerville, I didn’t see one Highway Patrol car--and all my driving was done in daylight.

If the truckers have so little regard for their own safety and the safety of other motorists, then it’s time for the Highway Patrol to start aggressively enforcing the speed and safety laws.
