(ANSA) – GENOA, 01 JUL – Exasperated by the queues that today have reached several kilometers in several sections of the Genoa motorway junction, many truck drivers have decided a sensational protest and got off the trucks. Transportunito Fiap announced this, explaining that “abandoning the vehicle is an extreme act”. The association explains that “on all the main Ligurian motorway routes with destination or origin Genoa and with the major Italian port under siege by traffic jams that totally block the gates, among the drivers of heavy vehicles, stopped for hours under the sun, transmitting a real tam-tam: get off the trucks “.
“After months of traffic jams, queues, works that should have been scheduled over the years as part of ordinary maintenance and were instead concentrated on the Genoese and Ligurian junctions causing its collapse with serious danger for road safety and real devastation of the production levels of the economic and transport system, the vessel – underlines Giuseppe Tagnochetti coordinator of Trasportiunito – is now full and the situation is beyond any control, with the consequent risks for anyone who ventures on the motorway and whose responsibility someone will have to bear “. The first driver to protest was stopped on the A7 Genoa-Milan near Arquata Scrivia. After a long wait, stopped in the queue, he warned the owner of the company he works for and got off the truck. Little by little the protest has spread and now there are many truck drivers involved in the demonstration. (HANDLE).
