Driving to Hartford the other day (no, you cannot really get there by train), I saw a beautiful sight: hundreds of trucks! Yet, motorists hate trucks and mistakenly blame them for traffic congestion and accidents that cause hours of delays.
Readers of this column know I’m a “rail guy” and would love to see freight trains replace trucks, but that ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. But as motorists we should not blame truckers for traffic woes of our own creation. Check the facts and you’ll find most highway accidents are caused by motor cars, not the trucks.
