Why Might Trucks-Only Lanes Be a Good Idea?

The GDOT says that the new lanes will improve safety and cut down maintenance costs. It claims the two new lanes would reduce delays by 40 percent by the year 2030, even accounting for increased traffic between now and then.

Many drivers favor the separation of trucks and cars on the road. Truck drivers are frustrated by car operators disobeying the rules of the road, while many motorists are afraid of big trucks on the highways.

What Are the Arguments Against the Trucks-Only Lanes?

Some object to spending nearly $2 billion on this project, when so many other projects sit unfunded. Others are skeptical that the trucks-only lanes will work in the long run, because if traffic eases up initially, more people and businesses will move to that area, creating even more traffic.
