Truckers need 88 Avenue

In regards to the letter sent by Marcelo Sanchez (“Take trucks off city streets,” May 27), I disagree with his opinion in regards to trucks on 88 Avenue.

That route is the quickest between places such as Tilbury Industrial Park and Highway 1.

Sure, there are other routes, but they take longer and the extra costs will be passed onto the consumer.

In regards to the Port Mann Bridge, it would be used more by commercial vehicles if the tolls were reduced by half. At this point trucks are charged $9 each way.

I’m proud to be a truck driver.
