RAIL VS. TRUCK: THE REAL ISSUES BEHIND LCVS

This article examines some of the issues behind the adversarial relationship between longer combination vehicles (LCVs) and the railroad industry. Discussion of the following areas is offered: LCVs are unsafe and will let truckers steal freight dollars from railroads; integrating LCVs into the truckload industry; diversion of railroad traffic; delay of LCV use due to lack of infrastructure facilities; and reassurance of railroad's status in our nation's economy.
