I’m thinking he may have read the above I posted saying 53 foot trailers can’t make pick ups or delivery’s within the 5 bouroughs. It’s the NYC DOT site so it may not be accurate.

Why would you say that it may not be accurate because it's the NYCDOT? I see the NYCDOT enforcement guys out here all the time, especially along popular truck routes. I had no idea that 53' trailers were not allowed without a permit if it's a non-divisible load. I do know of an event I attend at Jacob Javits Convention Center where their entire gear had to be transferred onto straight trucks in order for it to be brought into the city. Now it all makes sense.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

I just wasn’t real sure. I go into NYC quite a bit but I drive tanker and we only have 46 and 48 footers so I never really paid attention to that part.

Got it! I must say that I have the utmost respect for all the professional truck drivers that endure that portion of the I-95 corridor!! I remember reading that this section (Cross Bronx Expressway) was voted the absolute worst by a national survey of truck drivers. I'd have to agree!!

To deal with actual Manhattan traffic in a big rig? I hate it in a 4 wheeler everyday. Stay safe out there. (When you're driving behind a yellow taxi with the numbers on his roof light lit up? Stay well clear cause that means they're empty & will stop violently at times to pick up anyone who lifts their arm, even if it's just to pick their noses!!)

I stay on I-95 when I go through the Bronx area.
