Make truckers pay for road damage

May 02, 2016 at 10:05 AM CST

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is on the right track when he says he’s considering imposing tolls for big trucks moving on state roads in order to help fund his ambitious 30-year, $100 billion transportation plan.

Malloy is taking his cue from Gov. Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island, who is in the midst of implementing truck tolls to help that state rebuild its battered highways and bridges, over the objections of the national trucking lobby.
