When driving in the State of New York
Certain roadways within New York City have commercial vehicle restrictions. For the most part, commercial vehicles are prohibited from using the portion of the limited-arterial highway network, commonly referred to as the Parkway System.

No Commercial Vehicles, Trucks, or Tractor Trailers are Permitted on New York State’s Parkways. Commercial Vehicles must look for and obey the signs. These signs are typically located at the entrance ramp for parkways or are attached to guide signs indicating roadways where trucks, trailers and tractor trailers are not permitted.

When a bridge has an overhead clearance less than 14 feet, this sign is posted on the bridge indicating the legal overhead clearance of the bridge or elevated structure.​
Note: DO NOT rely solely on GPS units or online mapping services. They may incorrectly route you onto a parkway. Always obey posted signage.​

DO NOT drive your vehicles in the left lane on the Highways & Expressways

Don’t Break the Rules
  • Entering any parkway while driving a commercial vehicle could result in:
  • Fines and/or points on your drivers license;
  • Possible physical injury to yourself or others;
  • Damage to your vehicle;
  • Damage to infrastructure;
  • Towing fees in excess of $10,000; 
  • Reimbursement costs to the State and City 
  • for bridge repair;
  • Loss of wages; and
  • Loss of employment.​​
