Chip trucks and bicyclists
To the Editor:
I would like to comment on “Bethel selectmen ponder chip truck issues.”
I agree with Pat Carter’s suggestion for more police enforcement. To quote Mr. Doar, “It works for one truck… then they’re all on the radio… and they slow down.” Isn’t that the reason it is done?
The trucking industry is vital to Maine’s economy. They contribute much money to be on the roads – taxes, permits, licenses, etc.
I find bicyclists quite a challenge, and sometimes, a danger on the roads. They are granted the same privileges as a motor vehicle. It is difficult to pass them at times. Are they required to be licensed or pay any fees to be on the road?
