Peterborough councillor wants truck driver training schools to pay for road wear and tear

A Peterborough city councillor says big rigs are taking their toll on city roads and he’s targeting truck driver training schools to pay up.“This truck driving situation is costing us very serious dollars and very serious damage that I suggest has to be looked at,” said Councillor Dan McWilliams.He says residents are concerned the trucks are creating congestion and causing extensive wear and tear to municipal roads and streets.McWilliams admits it’s a bit ironic he’s asking truck training schools to pay up since he owns a moving company.“I’m the last guy to be talking about trucks on streets because I’m one of those particular people,” he said. “But let me tell you, I appreciate what I’ve got here; I’m a user pay.”
