New York Gov. signs off on truck ban

OOIDA reported that the Governor of NewYork has signed off on a regulation that would ban trucks from seven different routes in the Finger Lakes region of Northern New York. OOIDA along with other local trucking associations are planning to counter propose the ban. The ban would force all commercial trucks off these roads and onto the thruway. NYSDOT said it estimated it would cost truckers a estimated 10 million dollars more per year in fuel and tolls. Below is the routes to be affected. If you travel these routes then a meeting has been set up to plan steps to oppose this ban. If you are interested in attending then contact OOIDA. A link to their site is listed in the links section. Be safe and keep those wheels rollin'! -- Backlash
