“The mayor of Columbiana, Alabama has called for a ban on semi-trucks driving in their downtown area. He says that trucks are the main cause of traffic jams in his city..”

Okay, how is the mayor going to have food delivered to the grocery stores?

I've never been to Columbiana, Alabama but I can imagine that some cities might reasonably want to restrict long rigs in parts of the city, without any overall prejudice against trucks, trucking, or their drivers. It just depends how the city is laid out: width of streets, types of businesses, traffic patterns, pedestrians, etc. If large trucks do not need to make deliveries in a certain part of the downtown, why do they need to be there?

But no denying there are idiot liberals in some places who hate trucks and can not comprehend the consequences if trucks were banned throughout the whole county or country.

Downtown Columbiana is like one street about 1/4 mile long.
