Pittsburgh, PA — As the weather gets colder and the snow begins to melt, trucks are beginning to return to the city, once again.
In the last month, at least six trucks have made the trip from Pittsburgh to New York City.
A truck is one of the most popular forms of transportation for many people in the area, and it is a favorite mode of travel for many residents.
The vehicles have been making their way to the area as part of the city’s “Blue Lives Matter” campaign.
The vehicles have arrived in Pittsburgh in the past few weeks as part the city-wide truck pick-up and drop-off program.
It is a campaign launched by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Pittsburgh Police Department, which are trying to promote safe and responsible trucking practices and increase the use of public transportation by reducing vehicle crashes.
In February, a truck driver from Virginia died in a crash on Interstate 94 in Pittsburgh.
The truck driver, Mark Williams, was driving the truck when he was hit by a tractor-trailer while he was trying to clear a traffic jam.
A spokesperson for the Pittsburgh Department of Transportation told CBS News that it was a “motorcycle accident,” but did not specify which type of motorcycle it was.
The department says it is investigating.
Williams was the second driver of a truck to die on the highway.
An investigation into the driver’s death is ongoing, and there is no word yet on the extent of the damage.
For now, the city is making sure people are aware of the dangers of driving a truck on city streets.
“If you see a truck that is being driven in the middle of the street, it is not a good idea to let it pass through your neighborhood,” said Pittsburgh Police Chief David Brown.
It is estimated that about 90 percent of all accidents involving trucks happen on the highways.
The majority of truck crashes occur on the city streets and are not caused by a human error.
