I need some input on traffic laws (to see if Turner County gave me the right info). My husband started driving a truck about 4 months ago. He is home once a month and drives his truck home. He drives less than a block on a road that is marked "No Trucks" so he can back the truck onto private property to park. Also, the truck is never loaded. A comment has been made that he should not be allowed to come down this street because it is posted and also because of possible damage to the road.(which is crap)I am told that because he has purpose on this street (because he lives here) that there is no wrong-doing and nothing can be said. He is not parked in the road, he is not impeding traffic,nor is he blocking any kind of view.It is not thru traffic! One street over is also posted, but because there is a grain bin there, those trucks also have purpose there and nothing is said to them. I pretty much just want to say to whoever brought up the subject to "shove it". Any input?

Thanks for the feedback. I went ahead and invited anyone who had an objection to come see us around the 20th when my hubby will be home, but to bring law enforcement with them. And considering I have already got word that the State Patrol said "it's legal", I have no concerns.:) Thanks again!

Mam no disrespect, but if the road is zoned no trucks you can be ticketed for being on it, now how strict local law wants it enforced is another issue. Your best bet is to contact DOT or your county commissioner and read what the restrictions on the road are and if there are any exceptions to the rule. You can be denied access to the road with a commericial vehicle even if you live on it as the road is not weighted for commercial vehicles loaded or empty. The access to your home is guaranteed with vehicles that are allowed to operate on the road. Instead of taking the word of a deputy said, or the state patrol said, go get you a copy of the law and have it available in case their is a complaint, majority of deputies and troopers don't know what the specific law states, just a fact. Hope it works out for you.

i think its way easier to get on welfare and do nothing than it is to work for a living. there are always strict laws, fines and hurdles to jump through if you choose to work for a living and pay for all the losers that dont. if they want to fine you let them sit there day and night and catch the truck driving the 100ft down that road. once its on your property its nobodys business. doesnt sound to me like its posing any problem or hurting anything or getting in anybodys way. anybody that tries to make anything out of it is a weiner head. if you dont buy groceries with an ebt card and you wernt in line for a free government cell phone then keep trucking and park that bad boy in the yard when you get home. you aint the problem

Blah,
your use of speech, is indicator as to why you call your 5 trucks money pits, you don't know how to manage your business, and if truth be told, you and the bank hold title to the trucks. Anyway,regardless of that I do have a clue and please tell me where my information I gave the woman was incorrect in accordance to CVSA or DOT Fed. Regulation. I am not only a DOT Enforcer now, I drove commericial motor vehicle for ten years before coming to DOT, so fella, I know both sides of the business. So please do not let the facts get in the way of your misguided opinion. Have a nice day. Maybe I will have the pleasure of inspecting one of your 5 moneypits, I am sure there would be no problem in finding a violation or two..

If there are signs posted (Statutory) stating it is illegal to do, then prima facia evidence is, it is not legal.

Don't get too smug and start inviting people over yet, simply getting an opinion fom a State trooper does not determine if it is legal or not, even if it makes you feel good hearing that.
You need to get something in writing from the powers that be.
Best thing for you to do would be to go to a County commissioners meeting, or city council meeting, which ever has jurisdiction, and get an absolute clairification.

He CAN be cited, and it is perfectly legal for a law enforcement officer to cite him, simply for being on a roadway posted for "No trucks", regardless of what someone has told you.
