Should Cement Mixer Trucks be banned in Houston?
July 25, 2007 3 Comments
Yesterday in our fair city of Houston, there were 2 fatality auto accidents involving cement trucks. The dead motorists’ families of course have to deal with these tragedies, and prayers go out to them during this horrible time.
Seeming how one of the accidents affected many peoples’ drives home (myself included, State Highway 6 was shut down) and probably created a lot of added stress to folks trying to get home from work. Of course, we should all keep things in perspective for our increased drive homes are nothing compared to what the dead endured and their families are currently dealing with.
It seems that every time there is an accident involving firearms cries arise from certain sectors of the populace. Cries calling for governmental action to further regulate firearms or in some cases, ban them altogether. The simple fact that it takes a human being to pull the trigger sometimes goes without notice or if noted is dismissed.
So after such a brutal day in which cement trucks were involved in 2 separate incidents, is it time to consider the banning of such vehicles?
