Attention Local Officials:
Join over 1,000 of your colleagues from across the nation opposed to bigger trucks: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following statement, “Please add my name to the local official letter,” and include your signature block.
Over 1,000 local government leaders – including mayors, county engineers and public works directors – wrote a letter in 2018 to Congress asking policymakers to oppose any increases in truck size or weight, including longer double-trailer trucks and heavier single-trailer trucks.

In addition to the 1,000 community leaders opposed to bigger trucks, a 2018 poll found strong public opposition to heavier and longer tractor-trailers. The national live-operator poll found that 7 out of 10 likely voters oppose heavier and longer trucks.
Now you have your chance to sign the 2019 letter to Congress: Tell Congress you are opposed to bigger trucks because of the all the additional damage they would cause to local roads and bridges, while counties and municipalities are already struggling to find funds to repair and maintain infrastructure.
