Why it was tougher than usual to find a parking spot near the Capitol the past two days…

It was harder than usual to find a parking spot on the streets near the Capitol for the past two days, the Boise Weekly reports, as the Right Truck for Idaho Coalition parked big rigs and a demonstration trailer containing a truck driving simulator outside the Capitol on 6th Street, taking up much of both sides of the street and numerous parking spaces. The coalition is pushing for lawmakers to approve SB 1064, to permanently allow heavier trucks on Idaho roads on 35 designated routes, raising the allowed truck weight from 105,000 pounds to 129,000 pounds. A pilot project has allowed the heavier rigs on a growing number of specified routes for the past decade. You can read the Boise Weekly’s full report here.
