Q&A - Logging Trucks in Residential Areas
Are the drivers of these masive trucks carring large and very heavy logs taught in their Commerical Vehicle Driving School how important it is ( or should be ) that they obey the road signs perticulary in Residental areas . Judging by what I see in my small community sometimes plagued by these noisy vehicles I think not .
There are very clear signs stating 50 km , No Engine Braking or Unnecessary Noise Strictly Enforced but yet the noise and extreme speeding continues .
Vehicles such as these that carry heavy loads and cannot possibly stop in a hurry should by no means be exceding the speed limits ( nor should anyone for that matter ) in fact their speed limits should be lower .
The residents of my community do not feel it is safe to walk on the side of the road , I have witnessed a person jump down into the ditch when they heard a vehicle coming from behind ( pretty sad ) Do these drivers have some special licence that says they are above the Law .
