City should restrict trucks

I propose that the city take the lead and make a decree to “our” staff to keep the heavy trucks off upper Third Ave, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

I was the first person to respond to the accident last year at Steampunk Café and Coffee House on Third Avenue in which an elderly man backed across the road.

I can say for a fact that the reason was he panicked when a dump truck was coming up the road, and “gunned” the gas to get out of the way (I calmed the man down for almost 20 minutes).

I regularly see fully loaded  logging trucks use this two-block stretch.

It makes no sense in that there are many elderly people doing their banking here.

I propose that the city take the lead and make a decree to “our” staff to keep the heavy trucks off this two-block section.
