AMHERST – Work crews and first responders have spent much of Wednesday afternoon cleaning up the aftermath of a tractor-trailer that went into the ditch in the middle of the Highway 104, a few hundred metres west of Exit 4 in Amherst.

The truck was pulled out of the ditch facing west in the eastbound lane, forcing the closure of one lane. The truck is unable to move under its own power.

    Our Department of Transportation has to take a serious look at whether or not these transports are prepared to travel in our extreme and rapidly changing maritime weather conditions. Trucks from the southern US may not have proper tires to give them adequate traction in heavy snow or ice. It should be mandatory for them to have winter treads if delivering to the Maritimes during our winter season. Turn them back at the border if not properly prepared! Any mishap with them is non-forgiving!
