    Owing to truck bans only the bourgeoisie who survive on daily wage basis would be mostly

    affected. The rich business people can survive even with a perpetual boycott for long,

    however not the laborers who are expecting their profit to support their family from this

    business. Individuals, if not given a chance to win a living nicely, may go against from the

    ethical standards and make an issue.

    Totally agree with you.
    Customers are the first priority most of the time. But there's time or situation where customers are wrong. We can't say that they are right.
    In one case of the website which is directory website named I guess kilt guide, that was much focusing on their clients. But at the end, they started focusing on both customer and supplier sides.

    The truck ban hours of 6 am to 10 pm is kind of restrictive. But surprisingly, the truck owners and operators did not protest much maybe because they admit the fact that trucks can add to the heavy traffic in the daytime. In fact, at exactly 10 pm when the trucks start moving on the roads, heavy traffic is experienced in main roads so the authorities have designated a lane exclusively for trucks. In main roads here, there is a lane called Truck Lane that is the only lane that big trucks can use. So now warehouse operators are being creative in their business because of that truck ban during the daytime hours.

    I have seen or read somewhere that a few countries as you stated ban trucks from driving at night, since the crimes are a bit high in those countries, but it will down the business.

    Here in the US we have regulations which set limits on the total amount of hours a driver may be behind the wheel in a given period of time. These regulations are very poorly enforced. In fact, there's a tacit understanding in many trucking companies that books are to be cooked by default if it's what it takes to get the load to the client on time. This is further exacerbated by the county and district wide political environment in which many large companies will pay off law enforcement to look the other way when investigating truckers' road logs. Your dispatch may or may not support you if you're caught, so there's an added element of treachery involved that makes US goods distribution a very undesirable job in many ways.

    I can see why do you believe that it might lead to chaos or trouble in communities, but you have to take into consideration that in certain areas, it's necessary to protect drivers.

    Yes heavy commercial vehicles carrying 9 tones and above are banned in between 6am to 9pm in the city areas in most of my original country (India) so they either pass through bypasses or if they have to unload in any city with prohibition wait until 9. But most of the transport companies have their ports outside of main city areas or on the borders so they can unload easily but if the truck is on consignment basis to unload on a traders campus, they will have to wait.

    Most cities and towns have their own ordinances when it comes to truck traffic. There are certain roadways and highways where trucks are banned. Often times they have to take alternative routes when it comes to cities and towns. These are just some of the factors when it comes to trucks. They are allowed most places though.
