From Trucking Association of New York (TANY).
Member companies are asked to remind their drivers who may be operating in the Long Island area to avoid parking on the shoulders or service roads of the Long Island Expressway. Additionally, everyone is asked to spread the word to any other companies who may drive in this area to avoid parking on shoulders and service roads.
Recently there have been increased instances of illegal parking, creating a safety hazard for all operators. The NYSDOT is trying to get their message out and issue warnings rather than tickets, but will begin issuing tickets if the situation does not improve. Your cooperation is appreciated.
