DRTP Ad Contest Winner
The winning entry was that the trucks were using both sides of the road in the 2-lane DRTP tunnel to go in the same direction. This meant, if traffic was coming in the other direction, that there could be a catastrophic head-on collision that could close down the tunnel for who knows how long thereby disrupting cross-border trade to the detriment of the North American economy.
Of course there were a few other matters like:
- why doesn't DRTP tell us the cost of their plan and who is going to pay the billions for it since they cannot afford it
- how do they actually link to the Freeway system in Detroit
- how much will local international trucks and industry be hurt if trucks have to go all the way out to Highway 401 to be cleared by Customs and then have to go all the way back at what it costs per hour for a truck and driver.
- who pays for the cost of managing and paying for the upkeep of the new, multi-KMs long trails from rails (we cannot even afford the small Superior Park upkeep costs it seems) and who will pay for the policing costs?
Darn, I should have run another contest for that!
