    I don’t blame them, I retired from owning trucks after 33 years. I don’t want truck drivers around either. Not all drivers are bad and I do understand the need for safe parking. With that said it seems the pigs among the trucking community are growing exponentially. Always have been to some degree.

    I mean....what type of crime do they think a truck stop is going to bring? Just down the road is a Mr. Fuel and mom and pop in Pevely. They just don't want truckers around at all. The industry has such a negative tone to it. No matter what is done to clean it up, people still use out dated excuses to block a truck stop from being built. We haven't done ourselves any favors in terms of maintaining an image though.

    If the parcel of land by the roundabout is where it is planned, I don’t blame the residents for not wanting it. If it was down the road by the racetrack it might be ok. If the truck stop was already there and they built a neighborhood next door to the truck stop my opinion would be totally different. C87EBA47-1718-4FDE-A1C1-7BB13976E5B9.png

    I think we need to outlaw trucks.
    Those things are a danger to our highways running 55/63 in a 70 zone, causing congestion on the highway and leading to road rage.
    There is no room for these behemoths in our society.
    What about our children?

    With what is out here for drivers I really don't blame them.

    They just haven't given the right politician enough grease.

    I wouldn’t want to go in my backyard and be greeted with the aroma of hot urine on the pavement, either. Or deal with jugs and poop bags. Or have trucks parked all over when the Loves gets full.
