NO TRUCKS IN THE FAST LANE?

NO TRUCKS IN THE FAST LANE?

New Labour Party transport policies, which include plans to ban trucks from around 8 per cent of New Zealand's motorway network, have been met with a mix of praise and scepticism.

Truck drivers said preventing them from using the outside lane on three- and four-lane highways would be unworkable and unlikely to reduce congestion.

The Automobile Association (AA) also questioned the policy, saying its members had never cited trucks as a cause of congestion.

But many road users are in favour. Mother of three, Sally Nixon from Penrose said: "Those trucks are too big and intimidating. The outside lane should be for cars only. It's safe, and just commonsense."

It is proposed that trucks should be banned from the outside lane of motorways with more than 2 lanes
