    "At least 73 dead and 100 injured as lorry crashes into crowd of revellers celebrating in France ‘terror attack’

    Witnesses describe an exchange of gunfire between the driver and police as terror fears grow after incident in Nice."

    Paris was just misfiring of fireworks.

    Nice, however, not so much.

    France should have stricter truck control:

    They should close the private seller to private seller "truck loop hole".

    All trucks should only be allowed to have a 10 gallon gas tank capacity so as to minimize wonton damage and destruction. A database of fuel purchasers must be created and each citizen wanting truck fuel must apply for a fuel license for any truck - the permittee will be subjected to a background check and personal interview from local CLEO before a fuel permit is to be issued.

    All truck driver applicants should undergo a basic psych evaluation and background check with finger prints kept on record as well as 3 written references from friends who must hold professional accreditation in their job (Lawyer, Doctor, LEO, School Teacher etc...). In addition, the purchaser must prove a necessity for said "trucking" to the local CLEO and must submit to an in person interview - trucking permits may be issued to the requester on a "may issue" basis at the discretion of the CLEO or other head town or city official.

    France should look to implementing "smart trucks" so they can be tied to one individual only and will only operate after iris scan identification.

    Also, a new nation wide "assault truck" ban must take place immediately. An "assault truck" may be defined by any truck containing two or more of the five following features:

    1. Total weight exceeds 6,000 lbs
    2. Truck has more than 4 wheels in total
    3. The truck has an "arm thing that goes up"
    4. The truck has a vertical shifter
    5. The fuel tank holds more than ten gallons of fuel

    What about the NON-Manufacturer used truck dealer market? Have to limit all truck sales to authorized branded dealers only---- Kenworth trucks only available from a Kenworth dealer, Mercedes trucks ONLY from a Mercedes truck dealer etc.

    They should certainly pay for police to guard the truck so no one can steal it too.

    I have to agree with you. This is a common sense approach to assault truck violence. Anytime I see a truck in public with more than 4 wheels, a tank that can hold more than ten gallons, and a scary vertical shifter, well I just about pee my pants in complete fear. Thank you for having the courage to stand up to these assault trucks and call for a national ban. We must do it for the children and for a safer community.

    The best defense is a better offense,

    like my 6,000# AWD, 22 gallons diesel fuel, American made, licensed from Germany, BMW X5. I wish I could have afforded the armored version, but as it is, the Run Flat Tires will have to be enough.

    When folks criticize the RFT's my response is that they allow options in which bad neighborhood one stops. The security crew in Benghazi made good use of their unarmored BMW sedan on RFT's.

    In every killing where a person is mowed down with a truck, a truck has been involved.

    All trucks should not be allowed to have a full compliment of wheels ... only 2 per truck should be allowed.

    And the electronics should allow a non-operator outside the truck to disable its engine using the IPhone App "Stop that crazy truck".

    I expect France to leave the EU over this.

    This truck violence must stop, all other forms of violence are OK.

    Thank you for your support of this ban! I think I'll go find a billionaire and some corporate employee who has some PR experience (maybe a former employee of Monsanto or something). I will form: D.R.A.T. - Dads Really Against Trucks. I'm gonna make millions!!! Talk shows here I come!
