Another stuck truck blocks Notch Road
CAMBRIDGE, Vt. (WCAX) - The Smugglers’ Notch Road was blocked Tuesday morning by another stuck truck.
Vermont State Police say Kevin Drayton was headed south on Route 108S toward Stowe and ignored the road signs warning that tractor-trailers are prohibited in the Notch.
Police say Drayton got his rig stuck at about 4:30 a.m.
It blocked traffic for four hours while crews worked to get it out.
Drayton was issued two tickets with fines totaling $3,544.
Stuck trucks have been an ongoing problem in the tight and twisty seasonal passage between Cambridge and Stowe. The Notch has always been impassable for long trucks, but in recent years, more and more drivers are getting stuck, many by blindly following their GPS systems and ignoring the signs warning them their trucks will not make it through.
