Best Answer

Pickup trucks and vans are permitted on controlled-access parkways under the following conditions:

* They must have passenger car plates.

* They must be used only for non-commercial purposes.

* They must have an empty (unladen) weight of 5,500 pounds or less.

All other trucks that do not meet the conditions above are not permitted on controlled-access parkways. This restriction includes moving vans, trucks and trailers.

All vehicles (including passenger cars) with trailers or cargo carried on the roof are not permitted on parkways in New York State.

Excerpt from the actual rule:

§ 182.29 Projecting objects. (a) No vehicle will be permitted to enter or operate within the parkway system with any article of any kind on the outside of the vehicle, unless such article is carried in or upon a rack designed for that purpose.

(b) The maximum projection of both the article and rack above the roof of the vehicle shall not exceed 30 inches.

(c) The overall height of the vehicle, including article and rack shall not exceed 10 feet.

(d) The article and/or rack shall not project beyond the front and/or rear of the permanent

equipment of the vehicle more than a total of two feet and in no case shall project beyond the sides of the vehicle.

Vehicles with "combination" plates from other states are not permitted on parkways in New York State.

The rules are interpreted differently by the different agencies that maintain the actual parkway. What may fly on the Taconic upstate may not fly on the Belt since NYC and Highway 2 are calling the shots. You must check with the actual agency that controls the parkway you want to travel.
