DELTA, B.C. — Truckers who insist on running two and three abreast on Hwy. 17 are creating a stir among residents and four-wheelers.

The well-travelled highway running to and from the Tsawwassen B.C. Ferries terminal is a popular route for truckers, but there have been a growing number of complaints about trucks taking up the entire highway.

The B.C. Trucking Association is concerned about the increase in complaints, and encourages all fleets that use the highway to remind their drivers to be courteous and avoid impeding traffic.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Transportation is considering responding to the complaints by adding more signage and barriers warning truckers to stay in the right-hand lane.
