New Jersey city bans heavy trucks from parking on the streets
A New Jersey city has officially banned trucks and trailer trucks over 16,000 pounds from parking on its streets.
The City Council of Bayonne, New Jersey, passed an ordinance at its latest meeting amending the general revised ordinances regarding special rules for trucks, trailers and commercial vehicles.
The new amendment removes the exemption: Previously, drivers of trucks, trucks with trailers and other vehicles weighing more than 16,000 pounds could apply for a special parking sticker that allowed them to park on certain streets.
Residents of the city were not charged for the stickers, but residents of other localities were required to pay an annual fee of $500.
This feature has now been cancelled.
