As has been correctly pointed out, heavy trucks do damage to our roads out of all proportion to their numbers. It is not necessary to be a professional Accountant (which I am) to realize that if shippers were required to pay their true costs suddenly a lot more freight would be moving by railway.

Railways, of course, have exactly the same mathematics of maintenance that dictate heavy loads cause the most damage. But they charge accordingly. Which is why shippers are irresponsible and freeload off the hard-working taxpayer by using heavy trucks instead being responsible and paying their own way with railways.
