Toll hike for trucks?

New York State is proposing a 45% toll hike for large trucks using the Thruway.

This of course will affect the bottom line for trucking companies, farmers and small business owners. But the Thruway Authority asserts that trucks cause “thousands of times more wear and tear on the road” and are currently only paying about five times as much as passenger vehicles.

For more information see this article in Transportation Nation.

So, what’s your take on this?
