City officials hope to tackle truck traffic trouble
They destroy city streets and cause plenty of congestion on the roadways, so why haven't city officials done more to keep large trucks on their designated routes.
Salinas says ordinances are in place and maybe its time to take a look at enforcement.
They tear up the roadways, cause congestion and in some cases, break the law.
So why do truckers continue to run right over Laredo.
Mayor Raul Salinas acknowledges the truck problem, but says ordinances are already in place and city officials have done all they can.
He says the problem now may be enforcement.
With at least 4-thousand citations, a spokesperson for Laredo police says plenty is being done.
And really, city officials are the ones that need to take the problem seriously.
Mayor Salinas says he will meet with the police department to make sure that everything that can possibly be done on the issue is taken care of.
Police officials tell us, they welcome the criticism.
