    I am a resident on cty 22 and those big trucks shouldn’t be on 22. I walk and ride my bike on 22 and have had alot of close calls. The large trucks go way to fast and it’s pretty dangerous.

    I agree with you Dave B., I live on Co. Hwy 23 and those giant trucks have been coming thru here for about 2 years now, they are too big for this small road and they are flying through here which is too dangerous for a large truck with all the curves and wildlife on this road. The people who live on this road walk this road, kids ride their bikes, dogs get walked…its just too much
