Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is a sacred place in which our veterans are at their final resting place. It is a quiet, peaceful, and somber. It should be treated with the utmost respect, and the sanctity of the hallowed ground be preserved at all costs.
And yet, it repeatedly faces insults when truck drivers looking for Centerpoint Intermodal find their way in the cemetery — in spite of several signs indicating that it is not a truck route, and that semi-trucks are not permitted. If drivers can’t read the signs, surely they can understand the picture of the truck crossed out in red?
Unfortunately, that is not the case. Errant semi-trucks drive into Abraham national Cemetery regularly. In 2016, a lost semi-truck drove over the graves of several veterans. The lack of respect is appalling.
The loud trucks spewing diesel fumes are not only distracting and disruptive, but they are dangerous as well. The above pictures were taken 2/2/2018. The damage was a result of an errant truck backing up to get out. The picture of the truck driving right past the posted No Trucks signs is a disgrace.
NorthPoint Development is massive distribution warehousing facility, which means it will inherently bring more trucks to the area. It’s time to say we have enough in our community when we can’t control what we already have. #JUSTSAYNOTONORTHPOINT
