Trucking companies consider suing Canadian province

| 2/5/2008

Some trucking companies in Quebec are considering suing the province’s Transport Ministry for effectively putting 135 bridges off-limits by increasing the weight restrictions.

Today’s Trucking reports that heavy haulers in particular claim the restrictions have paralyzed their businesses.

The restrictions were put in place after a bridge collapse in Laval killed five people and injured six in September 2006.
