Nearly every legislative year, bills are put before Congress typically with the intent of improving conditions in the United States. For the purpose of today's post, let's focus on legislation specifically designed to improve driving conditions and highway safety here in the U.S.
In an effort to improve safety, many pieces of legislation have been presented over the decades; but it's a recent highway bill that is grabbing particular attention. That's because this particular bill could define the trucking landscape for generations to come. In the bill are provisions that would either allow or disallow the operation of 33-foot-long semi-trucks on the federal interstate system. While some support the use of these long trucks, others oppose such an action.
