Supes Look to Ban Hazardous Materials on 154


The County Board of Supervisors will be sending a letter to the California Highway Patrol asking it to ban all hazardous materials on Highway 154. The board also is requesting its state-level lobbyist to pursue legislation that would restrict the size of trucks on the highway, notoriously dangerous for its narrow lanes and steep grades. The requests come after the driver of a large tractor-trailer had brake trouble and crashed into a home, killing three people, after descending from Highway 154.
