Another View from Truckers
Thanks to BikePortland.org for drawing our attention to something we had missed. Not everybody in the freight industry is buying into the phony straw-man argument that giving due consideration to bicycling and walking means the end of our nation's highways. The editor of Trucker.com wrote a glowing description of Secretary LaHood's appearance at the National Bike Summit. The first line of which is: We like Ray LaHood. The article goes on to observe that maintained roads are necessary to deliver the bikes to ride on the new bike facilities. This is a much more reasonable reaction to the policy statement than we've seen from others.
