From Bayside Patch:
State Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, said he has introduced a bill that would help curb illegal truck traffic in northeast Queens.
The bill would allow law enforcement to seize and initiate forfeiture proceedings on trucks or tractors that weigh more than 10,000 pounds if the driver of the vehicle has been convicted of three violations for deviating from designated truck routes within 18 months.
The senator said trucks are legally bound to comply with designated truck routes, but many drivers break the rules and drive through residential communities to save time. His bill would increase penalties for repeat offenders.
