Warning to fuel tankers traveling through District 7…slow down

tankersPresident Pro-Tempore Jay Roberson says speeding, deteriorating road conditions and fuel tanker safety concerns in District 7 need to be addressed by the Department of Transportation.

More legislation is also needed to regulate the trucks traveling through residential areas.  The goal is to stop speeding and hopefully avoid a catastrophic accident.  For more information go to
