Research studies conducted over the last five years indicate that
dramatic reductions in sediment from road surfaces can be expected by using
lower tire pressures on heavy-haul vehicles.
The roads with the most dramatic reductions in road surface sediment are those
with no surfacing material or surfaced with aggregates that produce a high
degree of fine material during hauling operations.
