I have to say that I’d be on the side of the truckers in their beef with those who allow tractor trailers to illegally transport material that truckers are able to. The law is the law, and it served to protect the truck drivers from unfair competition.
Yesterday’s protest involved several trucks in a convoy around Hamilton with signs and slogans on them. It’s another case of alleged favourtism of certain companies and individuals when it comes to jobs and money, at the expense of the common man. Why would Government grant certain companies permission to use these vehicles for purposes that the trucks can do?
I would like to see how this situation turns out. As far as I know the Ministry of Transport hasn’t officially responded.
