The Coalition Against Bigger Trucks (CABT) opposes efforts at all levels of government to make trucks longer and heavier. CABT includes public citizen organizations, state and local law enforcement agencies, senior citizens, highway safety and environmental groups. CABT opposes bigger trucks because they raise serious safety, infrastructure, environmental and economic concerns. Therefore, CABT has embarked on a grass roots campaign to fight the efforts of bigger truck proponents to increase truck size and weight. Each year, 5,000 people are killed in truck-related crashes and over 100,000 are injured. Now, bigger trucks proponents want to place even bigger trucks on the road -- including triple and long double longer combination vehicles (LCVs) -- and heavy single trailer trailers weighing 100,000 pounds. Bigger trucks translate into greater damage to roads and bridges, more congestion and an unbalanced freight transportation system.
