NEW YORK -- Tractor-trailers have been banned on the New York State Thruway from the Syracuse area to New York City because of the nor'easter that's hitting the region.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has issued the ban Wednesday for Interstate 90 from Exit 36 just outside Syracuse to the Albany area, and for Interstate 87 from Albany to the Yonkers-Bronx line.
The ban also includes tandem-trailers and box trucks.
Drivers who violate the ban could be ticketed facing up to 3 points on their license and fines. State officials said all drivers should avoid any travel unless absolutely necessary.
