Log Truck Wreck

When are the Alabama State Troopers going to send a serious message to the log haulers to slow down?

Recently, there have been three rollovers here:

In DeArmanville, where there are logs still in a ditch.

There was the rollover on Alabama 21 near U.S. 431.

And there was the rollover at U.S. 431 and Choccolocco Road.

In the past, there were checkpoints and portable scales to keep the log-truck drivers in check.

Now, as with everything else, four or five people have to die for them to even consider taking action.
