  1. Full truck exiting towards Ridgewood? Where was it going?

  2. These guys drive like hell in vehicles that are not maintained very well……accident(s) waiting to happen.

  3. Uh Oh… trucks can’t manage an exit ramp.
    The SHUT IT DOWN!!!

    (that’s the logic used for Brookside, so…)

  4. Probably headed to the transfer station in Hillsdale. You can also get to Lynwood Ave., East from that exit.
