Banning commercial trucks from local streets

Trucking Association of Massachusetts past Chairman John Hamel recently submitted feedback on an important topic to the trucking industry. The Boston Globe recently asked, Should Massachusetts ban commercial trucks from local streets except for pickup and delivery?

In part, he wrote:

From a practical point of view, preventing trucks from taking the most direct route between two points would only increase the potential for accidents. By adding to the miles trucks have to travel, it would also mean expanded use of fossil fuels and create more congestion on our already overcrowded roadways.
