    In 2004 I didn't actually call the cops ..they just happened by .
    I did lots of multi picks in the city then and was in an industrial area off of Atlantic Ave and conduit in queens just leaving a pick up I hit an illegally parked brand new Ford Taurus with my very stout great Dane ICC bumper pushing the car up against a curb while the bumper ripped open most of the drivers side destroying it .
    So parked and went looking for the owner to no avail when along came an unmarked NYC cop car whom I flagged down and he at first said he was a detective and didn't handle such matters but suddenly asked what happened and I told him ...he looked around and said well that fargin isn't supposed to be here so if I wasn't concerned about my scratched up bumper he would just have the car towed and I was free to leave .
    I couldn't get to the gwb fast enough and never heard another word about it .

    Trucks are allowed on Garden State Parkway south of route 18 (exit 105), and also on the short stretch between NY state thruway south to the 1st exit before NJ state line.

    Almost needed it today! I HATE rural driving.
    81N state route in TN it’s not restricted but #### well should be!!

    Switch back curves and the locals drive like it’s fing nascar. Almost swapped out mirrors with a dually pulling a horse trailer. His nose was on the yellow my tandems were too. But no impact and close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades!

    it doesn’t matter if you miss by an inch or a mile. Missing is missing or whatever Vin diesel said.

    "Trucks" but I don't think you'll meet this criteria.

    "Trucks and other commercial vehicles are permitted on the Garden State Parkway from EXIT 0 (US 9 / NJ 109) in Cape May north to Exit 105 (NJ 18 / NJ 35 / NJ 36) in Tinton Falls. Tractor trailers are permitted south of Exit 105, provided that they meet other restrictions (maximum 40-foot length for trailers and 55-foot length overall)."

    Parkways in New Jersey.
     
    Labrador and slow.rider Thank this.
