Trucker issued hefty fine for blocking Notch Road

STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) Leaf peepers bound for Smugglers' Notch needed to find an alternate route Monday after a tractor-trailer got stuck on the Notch Road.

Police say Route 108 was shut down for several hours after the truck got caught in a tight spot. The road was reopened around 12:30 p.m.
Authorities say the driver was issued several tickets, including one for $2,347.00

The perennial problem of large trucks and buses getting stuck prompted lawmakers to increase penalties last year, but the occasional driver following their GPS still gets stuck.
