I would also not be surprised to find certain roads forbidden to trucks over a certain length, or forbidding trucks with tandem trailers, because the road in question doesn't have room for a vehicle that size to turn around.
we already have maxweight, and weight limits are common in
these parts (i suspect the county is trying to make sure that
fully loaded gravel trucks are limited to state highways). i just
use maxweight where it's appropriate.

the no trucks sign i saw yesterday in Schenectady (on Wendell
Avenue) was clearly intended to prevent big trucks from using
a quiet residential street as a shortcut. there was no posted
weight limit on the sign.

probably if the wiki entry for hgv were revised to reflect
weight limits are per applicable ordinance that'd do the job.
