MILTON, Ont. — Traffic delays continue on Highway 401 through Milton at Trafalgar as gravel haulers continue to protest allowable axle weights.
According to reports, dozens of protesters parked their trucks in the weigh scale lanes early yesterday morning, creating a visual distraction for drivers in the area and causing major delays.
OPP Sgt Kerry Schmidt reportedly spoke with the organizer of the protest, who claims the demonstrators and truckers are fed up with the Ministry of Transportation about the way their loads are weighed and charged.
The protest is expected to continue for the rest of the day or until a solution is reached.
