Sure enough, after all the promises that the megaloads posed no problems to those of us who also use the U.S. Highway 95 route, a megaloads driver smashed into a couple of cars. Thankfully, the megaloads didn’t kill anyone this time. According to the Daily News article (December 8), the police blame only the driver of that megaload truck.
The responsibility really belongs to Idaho’s Republican power structure, from Gov. Otter to the Legislature to the lackeys at the state Department of Transportation. All they saw was money coming their way. They didn’t consider the safety and welfare of the citizens.
Idaho’s state government really needs an enema. It’s time to clean out these autocratic Republicans.
