If Georgia votes for heavier trucks, those trucks won’t be able to use interstate highways where the weight limit is capped at 80,000 pounds.
The heavy trucks will instead only drive on state, county, and local roads, creating dangerous driving conditions where we live.
And heavier trucks will tear up the asphalt and weaken bridges faster, leaving local taxpayers to foot road repair bills out of their already overburdened city and county budgets.
We urge you to contact your local Georgia House representative and tell them to vote against House Bill 189 to keep overweight trucks off our roads.
The lives of people you love depend on it.
