LETTER: Stop picking on truck drivers
THE front page of The Northern Star for Thursday, November 26 ran the story of a double tragedy on our roads.
In the editorial on the front page apart from information about the accident it is stated that the truck driver will undergo mandatory blood and urine tests.
That is mentioned within the first four paragraphs, then it goes on for another 10 paragraphs to give details on the second accident and other non truck accidents in the area.
Not once in those paragraphs does blood and urine tests, whether mandatory or otherwise get mentioned.
Let's stop this picking on truck drivers and treat everyone equally.
If someone is involved in an accident whether a truck is involved or not, alcohol and drugs should be tested for.
