The city says they’re putting more trucks on the streets than ever before. Officials say their goal is to keep people safe.
“Always, my biggest fear is people. People ending up in an emergency room because they decided to get on the road and followed too close, or someone who slips and falls,” Fontana said. “We fear people getting hurt, injured, or losing their lives. That’s what we try to prevent.”Related: Click here for a list of closings
