Operation of Trucks
Colorado Springs City Code
Chapter 10: Motor Vehicles - Article 21: Truck Routes - 10.21.104:

A. Through truck travel shall be unlawful upon prohibited routes. It shall be unlawful for any person to operate or cause to be operated a truck upon a prohibited route without an origin or destination in the immediate area of operation.

B. Upon the designation of truck routes, it shall be unlawful for any person to operate or cause to be operated a truck upon any other street, highway or other public way. Trucks may deviate from truck routes while traveling to or from a truck terminal, garage, place of repair, place of performing a service or place of loading or unloading, and may proceed from a destination not located upon a truck route to another destination without returning to a truck route if to so return would unreasonably increase the distance to be traveled between destinations.

C. Any person operating a truck upon all or any portion of a street, highway, public way or roadway that is not a truck route, or upon a prohibited route, shall have in the person's possession a log book, delivery slip or other evidence of the point of origin and destination to justify the presence of the vehicle upon the route. Failure to produce evidence upon request of a police officer shall be unlawful. (1968 Code 6-21-4; Ord. 75-86; Ord. 85-263; Ord. 01-42)
