Re: “Tax break for truckers? Give me a break

Trucks don't pay enough for roads. Truckers pay a lot of taxes and they have a tough job, but they are dangerous and do not cover thier costs. Trucks also are involved in about 3,500 fatalities each year. They use 4 or 5 times as much fuel as the same freight by rail. As a nation, we should ship by rail more, as much as possible for the long haul, and leave the dangerous truck for the short haul between the warehouse and the stores. Any one freight train is hundreds of gas-guzzling trucks off the public highways. Make trucks pay their share and more freight will go to rail for the long haul.
