City Issuing Truck Drivers More Fines

The Police Department of Shamokin Dam, Pennsylvania, has been authorized by the mayor to issue more citations to truck drivers for illegally driving on municipal roads. 

The Chamber of Commerce Transportation Committee at the Greater Susquehanna Valley, said truck drivers ignore the roads weight limits and often get stuck in neighborhoods, “and police officers have to stop traffic to help them navigate out of the community,” according to committee chair McGranaghan. 

McGranaghan also suggested that officers “throw all you can”, implying to issue as many tickets and fines to truck drivers as they can, in hopes the area will gain a reputation they won’t tolerate such behavior. 

McGranaghan and engineer Art Thomas for Monroe Township, who claimed township has similar issues, both warned they’ll be in contact with National Beef Packing Company, LLC., in regards to their drivers being majority of truckers getting stuck on municipal streets.
