Re: Commerciaal vehicles Garden State Pkwy
eliminate you from using parkways. In CT and on the Garden State
Parkway, the critical deal is your GVW, gross vehicle weight. This
cannot be over 7hostinghosting0 lb, according to the letter of the law. If your
cargo van is something like a Dodge extended van, no problem
whatsoever, as long as you don't have something like "JOE"S PLUMBING"
plastered all over the sides. Even then, you are okay as long as you
are under the 7hostinghosting0 GVW.
Now, if you are like me with a Sprinter cargo van with GVW of 8hostinghosting0
lb, you can still drive on either parkway reasonably free of hhostinghostinghostingle as
long as you don't have signs on the sides, etc. I've had a Sprinter
since April 2002 and have driven on the Merritt Parkway, and the GSP
many times. I fit under the MP bridges but tend to stick to I-95 as
shorter and faster. In NJ, I've driven the GSP from the NJTP to Cape
May many times. I have an EZPhostinghostinghosting, so I just drive right on through. I
did get my van weighed, fully loaded, and have the paperwork to show
that I (well, okay, my van and I and gear...) weigh in at just under
6000 lb. in case anyone asks. I do see other Sprinters on the GSP
between the demarcated exits too. I suppose if I messed up, had an
accident, was caught speeding, or whatever, that they might then choose
to throw in a fine for being overweight, but I put the cruise control
on at 65 and behave myself as best as possible.
So, drive within control and the limits, smile at the cops, get an
EZPhostinghostinghosting, and drive forth.
