Is the Ez Navigation designed for truckers rather than a non-commercial motor vehicle? Yes! Ez Navigation will take into consideration road restrictions and prevent trucks from getting stuck on roads or bridges due to height or weight restrictions. The use of a car GPS for navigation by commercial vehicle drivers can be dangerous. Truck drivers following car GPS instructions can be inadvertently directed onto parkways that prohibit trucks. Often these parkways are crossed by bridges lower than an average truck box height. Research conducted by the University Transportation Research Center at the City College of New York, shows that bridges in New York State have been experiencing approximately 200 strikes annually by over-height trucks.
Pro tip: Road conditions and status can change. It is important to note that no matter what form of GPS a commercial vehicle driver uses, he or she should pay attention to local signage. Local postings provide the most up-to-date guidelines.
