Lawsuit filed over fiery crash that killed 4 in Henry County

Trucks-only highway proposed to relieve congestion

Trucks are the backbone of Georgia's economy as well as the main supplier of the goods that people in the state consume. They are the only options to bring the required food and products to the many communities away from the Atlantic Ocean or train lines.

From the coast near Savannah to the border with the Florida Panhandle, Georgia is full of trucks of all sizes and types.
