The mayor of Riverdale, a small town which has six entrance and exit ramps onto the highway, says tolls aren’t the answer, reports the Associated Press. He’d rather limit trucks to 45 mph. “Tolls won’t slow anybody down,” said Michael Dedio. “You want to carry 80,000 [pounds], you have to go 45 mph. I would lead that fight.”
Recent Class 8 trade volumes have been lower than predicted, which means pricing has been more stable than expected for used trucks, according to J.D. Power & Associates.
