    I only posted what I did because your statement was false. The signs are far from obscure and the arrows tell you what direction to turn when you get to the truck route. And they clearly say it’s strictly enforced. Sucks you weren’t paying attention and got a ticket, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a money grab when you didn’t follow the signs.

    It’s definitely a money grab. Me and another truck got pulled over on this exact same route due to poor signage. ALL THEY HAD TO PUT WAS A NO TRUCKS ALLOWED sign to prevent trucks from going through their petty ##* town. All the people commenting against probably live in that town! These people are clearly extorting out of town truckers as they know the fine will paid.

    They quite literally have bright yellow signs that are large and easy to read that say local deliveries only. So if you’re not making a delivery one could reason that the sign means you’re not supposed to go that way. It also tells you that the truck route is strictly enforced so it shouldn’t come as a surprise when you get caught off the truck route. And no, I don’t live there, I don’t even live in that state, but I can read and comprehend signage.

    It’s very well marked. It’s not a money grab. Maybe you need to pay attention when you drive.
