Legislative Update: BIAMI & CABT Partners Win 1st Round in Defeating Heavy Truck Legislation!

19-Jul-2017

Comparison of truck sizes

CABT, the Coalition Against Bigger Trucks, strongly supported by BIAMI, successfully kept an amendment allowing bigger trucks from inclusion in a Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill voted on July 17th. This victory – the first in what will be a long, challenging battle – is especially notable because of powerful lobbying from big truck proponents FedEx, UPS, and Amazon.

The BIAMI opposes “Double 33s” because research and traffic safety data demonstrate that their enormous size and poor braking ability cause significantly more accidents and deaths than even the double trailer trucks now on our roads. And the major damage they do to roads and bridges would cost Michigan taxpayers a fortune.

BIAMI promises to keep the fight going, and we urge your support of CABT’s effort. Learn more at www.cabt.org.
