Heavy truck traffic in Pennsylvania generates toll booth revenue


The Sentinel in Carlisle, Pennsylvania reports on how truck traffic is making big money for toll booths on a local stretch of road.

Truckers pay more tolls because of the size and weight of their vehicles. The road is home to warehouses and other shipping related businesses.

While the revenue is welcome, some local residents have mixed feelings about the number of trucks passing through and the amount of exhaust they produce. New emission control and idling control technologies could make the truck traffic cleaner.
