Background information

These trucks run during the day Monday through Saturday. They are very noisy and produce fuel emissions and particle pollution from uncovered loads which are entering households and being breathed in. They could cause serious traffic accidents and are frightening, particularly to children, families, old people and persons with disabilities using the footpaths and crossings.
