As the second part of a winter storm bore down on Connecticut, Governor Dannel Malloy this afternoon announced a ban on tandem tractor trailers on state highways.

Malloy has previously banned all tractor trailers during the recent series of winter storms, but so far, he is not taking that step with this storm.

“We are working with the trucking industry,” Malloy said.  “We will have a tandem trailer ban from midnight until 4 pm.”

Malloy is expected to hold a 4:30 am conference call Wednesday, with other state officials.

    why not ban all of them? why just tandems? they all pose a risk and should be banned in weather such as this that we are expecting

    And you’ll be the first to complain when the store is out of something. Maybe they should ban the amatures and let us profesionals drive in peace.
