The EDC has the power to ban and/or fine FCR and these trucking companies, if they are issuing fines them, then fining them is ineffective or why when will the ESD start fining or banning them. Why should the NYDP be asked by the ESD to use police resources until the ESD has exhausted all means available to them? Continued on slot of Barclays Arena dump trucks illegally using residential Bergen St and not using NYCDOT truck routes again reported & brought to the attention of the 78th precinct during the 2012-05-29 meeting.

From ESD Project Director Hankin:
New York City Truck Routes Rules and Regulations allow trucks to utilize this route. The City Rules & Regs state: 
"Trucks with an origin or destination for the purpose of delivery, loading or servicing within the respective borough, shall only operate on designated local routes, except that an operator may operate on a street not designated as a local truck route for the purpose of arriving at his/her destination. This shall be accomplished by leaving a designated truck route at the intersection that is nearest to their destination, proceeding by the most direct route, and then returning to the nearest designated truck route by the most direct route. If the operator has additional destinations in the same general area, he/she may proceed by the most direct route to his/her next destination without returning to a designated truck route, provided that the operator's next destination does not require that he/she cross a designated truck route."
Trucks are therefore allowed to leave the local and through truck routes to access any aspect of the construction site.
