Over 1,000 Local Officials Deliver Letter to Congress Opposing Bigger Tractor-Trailers

Over 1,000 local government leaders – including mayors, county engineers and public works directors – wrote a letter in April 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.

Join local officials from across the country and tell Congress you are opposed to bigger trucks because of the all the additional damage they would cause to local roads and bridges, especially while counties and municipalities are already struggling to find funds to repair and maintain infrastructure.
