Truckers, slow down!

Hello, this letter is in response to the multiple accidents that are happening on Highway 3.

I am a commercial truck driver based in Kelowna and I haul Super B trains between the Okanagan and the coast.

The police and CVSE (Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement officers) need to enforce speed limits and (deal with) unsafe truck drivers. It is ridiculous how fast some of these trucks are going, trying to pass other large trucks on sharp corners and using oncoming lanes to pass slower trucks. Add to that, most drivers—both commercial and of cars—don’t know the route and drive it at the same speed as on the Coquihalla Highway.

I was cut off three times (Thursday) by other commercial trucks going way too fast and passing like it’s a race.

CVSE and the police need to do a much better job because obviously people are too stupid to slow down on a road they do not know.

B. Robson, Kelowna
