RI Town’s Proactive Move to Discourage I-95 Toll Avoidance

The Kent County Daily Times reports that the Town of West Warwick is considering a measure to discourage truck drivers from using the municipality’s streets to avoid future I-95 tolls.  The town council has had its first reading of a revised ordinance that prohibits “heavy trucks” from using town streets as thoroughfares. Public works and emergency vehicles, and truckers making local deliveries would be exempted.
