Those Damn Rush-Hour Semis

Trucks on the Highways (or Freeways for us Angelinos)... are a menace during rush hour. If I ruled the world (which... come on, who wouldn't want), Trucks and Semis would be BANNED from the Highways during Rush Hour (6AM-9AM and 4PM-7PM). Where does Anheuser-Busch have to go at 6:30 in the morning anyway?

Trucks are the cause of many accidents - albeit indirectly a lot of the time, as cars try to zip around them. But let's keep them off the roads during times when sooo many drivers are out. Let's try it. See if it cuts down on accidents.

And while we're on the topic of Trucks, let's leave the commercial trucking industry alone and talk about those over-bloated Pick-Ups and SUVs. For my money, I've noticed that as the size of vehicles goes up, IQ points go down - "Hello you Monster Truck fans!" Not a triple digit IQ score among them. Giant Fords and Dodge trucks do not belong in Metropolitan areas. And yes, I am sure the stereotype of the drivers 'compensating for something else' is true.
