'Eco-nuts' vs. truckers
"Utah Dem does a little GOP mock talk on air scare" (Tribune, Feb. 5) featured quotation from a constituent to her Utah legislator: "Why on earth do we not have an ordinance requiring trucks to drive in the right lanes with slower speed limits?"
That attitude shows a lack of respect for the working class. Once again, the eco-nuts show themselves to be snobbish.
Why do the eco-nuts hate the trucker who brings the food to the grocer? Why do you want to penalize the trucker because you choose to live in a geographical smog trap? Is the trucker's time not as valuable as your own? Is the trucker not entitled to earn a decent living?
Eco-nuts claim to take the high road, while denigrating those who improve society by working on the road. These arrogant, condescending snobs could choose to hire a trucker to remove them from this smog trap, but sadly, most choose to remain and complain.
