Trucks Ignoring Signs in Residential Area

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND - A portion of Williamsburg Road is restricted to truck traffic but residents say the truckers refuse to follow the rules.

The trucks ignoring "no truck" traffic signs along the 1500 block of Williamsburg Road, which is a residential section. For safety reasons, trucks are banned from this portion of the roadway. But more than a dozen truckers cruised by when 8news crews were out there.  Residents are upset because some trucks carry hazardous materials, including fly ash.

Richmond police say they are aware of the problem and are working on a plan to fix it, but it is not as simple as just sending out a traffic enforcement officer since they are dealing with weight restriction for these trucks. That means they need scales out there.
