THINGS THAT ARE DUMB: Local roads are not truck routes

We've featured this particular problem at this intersection many times before. Tractor trailer drivers are always trying to avoid traffic in the area by taking shortcuts through our residential streets. Neither 74th Street nor Caldwell Avenue is a truck route, but behemoth 53' trailers are frequently found there on the way to/from the Long Island Expressway. And all too often, these trucks get stuck, and the maneuvering done to free them can cause damage to trees, power lines, parked cars and other private property.
