Police enforcement of truck traffic in Halton Hills brings mixed reaction
Published November 25, 2022 at 2:58 pm
Public complaints about trucks in a Halton Hills neighbourhood have brought police enforcement…but not everyone is pleased.
Halton Regional Police say the enforcement is ongoing in the community of Norval, especially in the area of Winston Churchill Blvd./Adamson St. N./Noble St.
“We are in Norval today, dealing with an ongoing complaint regarding trucks disobeying the no truck route,” Halton police noted on social media.
Along with the tweet police also posted a photo of the sign that lets truckers know they are not welcome.
The police presence in the area comes in response to Norval residents who say trucks continually roar through the area, ignoring the posted signs and creating unwanted noise for those who live nearby.
Still, others took to Twitter saying the signage through the village is confusing for truck drivers.
“I see the sign. But I also see that the sign leaves me nowhere to go because I am (not) allowed to stop and back up into the intersection and make the turn onto another route. FAIL.,” wrote one user.
Another pointed out that the sign in the picture in blocked by a hydro pole.
One suggested the signs are too small.
“Drivers don’t look for it, they are instead, watching for other vehicles, pedestrians, potholes, and traffic ahead. Not saying it’s an excuse, but the township needs to improve the size or location, even huge worded NO TRUCK sign like other towns did,” they commented.
Police point out there are five signs posted indicating that trucks are not allowed
“I didn’t see the sign is not an excuse,” Halton Police said.
