Big rigs just too big for downtown Thomasville

September 4, 2007

Thomasville-- Thomasville's city council is fed up with their historic brick streets being cluttered with truckers who shouldn't be there. 

Large trucks are not permitted to cut through the downtown area unless they're making deliveries there.  

"It's not easy for them to maneuver through the downtown area so we try to discourage them to, and encourage them at the same time. Discourage them from coming through town and encourage them to use the bypass because that's what its there for," explains Lieutenant Steve Belvin with the Thomasville Police Department.

Other traffic laws, like no left turns at the intersection of Broad and Jackson during daytime hours will also be more strictly enforced for all motorists.
