Trucks Rumbling Through Downtown
We have an office downtown, right on First Street. Every work day, several times an hour, large semis roll by with the name Ary Brothers Trucking on the side. In the five minutes I have been typing this, two of their trucks have gone past.
My questions are: 1) Does anyone know why they are so prolific and are they working on a local project (within city limits)? 2) Why are they driving through downtown, when clearly the truck route goes down Highway 50 and through Poncha Springs?
This seems like an egregious violation of the law. It creates a large amount of noise downtown and produces a lot of wear and tear on our streets, which are not designed to take this kind of heavy traffic. It also seems a lot more dangerous to have so much heavy equipment moving through downtown, which has the highest volume of pedestrian traffic.
