Finger Lakes Region: Truck regulations off the table

Other long haul truck drivers can continue to expect enforcement when traveling through Skaneateles.

"We're going to continue our enforcement," Green said. "If they're going to travel through Skaneateles, they better be doing so legally."

In a press release, the New York Farm Bureau said it applauded the DOT for dropping a proposed regulation that "would have severely restricted truck traffic from New York's rural roads."

According to the Farm Bureau, the proposal would have forced thousands of farms to reroute produce and milk deliveries, which would have resulted in farm trucks traveling countless miles out of their way.

However, the regulations excluded trucks making local deliveries and included a 25-mile rule, which would permit large trucks to travel on the seven excluded highways if restricting their travel to the qualifying highways was going to add more than 25 miles to the truck's one-way trip.

Calls made to Klink for comment on Monday's decision were not immediately returned to the Skaneateles Press.
