Ban Tractor Trailers on Highway 8
Petition Background (Preamble):
After a couple of meetings, we established our agenda, which is to “make Hwy 8 safer for the residents and cyclists who frequent this road”. It became very clear that a divided, twinned Hwy 8 is years away, so the interim solution, in our opinion, is to remove the heavy truck traffic from this highway.
There are 3 other alternate heavy truck routes through Calgary from the west to Hwy 2 south, and the current Hwy 8 route is the only one that is a 2-lane undivided highway. To accomplish this, all it takes is some No Heavy Trucks signage, Provincial approval, RCMP enforcement, and your support.
Please join us in this worthwhile endeavour to save lives in our Springbank Community. Help us by please writing to our website www.NotOn8.ca, Rockyview Municipal Council, your MLA, the Provincial Minister of Transportation and our Premier.
