NPPD’s traffic unit is increasing enforcement on commercial motor vehicles within the City
With growth and construction, we are seeing a lot more of them around town. We will be looking for violations including unsecured loads, cutting through a “No Thru Truck” zone, drivers not properly licensed, etc.
We also ask the motoring public to respect these commercial vehicles as they are sharing the road with them. Don’t cut them off and be sure to give them more room than you would give a car to stop and turn. We get frequent complaints about CMV’s on roadways which are marked “No Thru Trucks”. However, that doesn’t mean they can never be on those roads. If a driver has a legitimate reason to be in one of those areas, such as to get to or from a job site or delivery, it is not a violation. Be safe out there everyone!
