Not all delivery trucks. My father-in-law delivers home heating oil and has been pulled over and ticketed more than once in Hamilton for driving his oil truck on residential streets he is required to deliver oil to.

This is another example of trademark Hamilton incompetence. A truck delivering heating oil, that actually has a purpose for where it is, gets ticketed. In that case there is some useful and necessary purpose to the truck being there. Was he over the size maximum or something?

But if you're transporting tanks and roaring through town with no business here, just on a shortcut, you are welcome and encouraged. We have many fine residential neighborhoods for you to speed through.

In light of studies like this I wish there was more accountability. Who in the city is going to reimburse medication costs when your health is damaged by pollution? Who to complain to? Against whom do you file suit? We just have to slowly die while these people make one stupid decision after another?
