NY State Proposing Laws to Restrict Trucker Use of GPS

It’s not that Gov. Paterson doesn’t like GPS, he just doesn’t want truckers using products which route the vehicles on inappropriate routes that bring them into restricted areas, for example bringing hazards into residential areas or sending trucks on collision courses with low bridges. Penalties could include jail time or truck confiscation.

New York state cites more than 1,400 bridge strikes in the past 15 years with 46 in suburban Westchester County in 2009.

The bill could be in legislature by January.
