  1. As trucks burn diesel fuel, they release a variety of contaminants into the air, leading to smog and air pollution. When you see a diesel truck on the roads and highways around Atlanta, you probably noticed they often produce exhaust smoke and soot. Soot represents a known human carcinogen. Consisting of fine metal and mineral particles, truck exhaust poses a serious threat to human health once it reaches the air. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists (of which I am a member), carbon monoxide emissions can block oxygen from reaching the brain or heart, while sulfur emissions impact the respiratory system, particularly in asthma patients. (of which there are many adult and children asthma sufferers in Atlanta) Other toxins like benzene and acetadehyde are linked to birth defects and cancer.

  2. Does anyone know how long it lasts? We have music class from 10:30 to 11:30 but I know my little one would love to see the trucks up close.

    1. Skip music class. I think it only last until about noon, or maybe that is just how long we last with the toddler.

    2. It’s from 10-1. So:

      music class => Touch a Truck=> lunch=> nap=> Candidates Forum and Meet&Greet! = terrific day! :0)

  3. No matter how old my boy gets, I will always remember Touch-a-Truck day fondly. It’s a must for any toddler to kindergartener who worships trucks. I still think the event title is a bit racy but it’s a Decatur tradition.
