    I am an OTR truck driver (but I'm from NY) and we as truck drivers thank you and appreciate you helping one of our brothers.By the way,he didn't have to take the Major Deegan/RFK to get to Long Island.He should have stayed on the Cross Bronx and taken that to either The ThrogsNeck or The Whitestone to The L.I.E. (I495) 👍🏾

    Blokes like you are as rare as rockin horse shit. I'm a truck driver from Australia and when I first went interstate, well before GPS was around, I could've used a local who knew the area. You're a top bloke.

    The only time I been into NYC was when I was training to be a truck driver. The very first thing I was told was to say on expressways. The parkways are bad.

    MTA express buses use the Harlem River Drive. A tractor trailer MIGHT have made it. However, it's better to err on the side of caution.

    You are the nicest person in the big city that actually helps a driver instead of just watching them driving in to trouble which is easily done I delivered many times there especially hunts point and the meat district by pier 45

    Hi, I'm a truck driver and have gotten into similar situations especially early on in my career.
    One such as this in NY and a very well dressed gentleman in a very nice Lexus helped me find my way off of a parkway. There's not many like you and him out there. So I just wanted to let you know how great a thing you did for this poor guy. Thanks for being a good guy especially when most people would have just blown their horns and flipped him the bird…or video taped him hitting a low overpass for a YouTube video.
    Anyways, sorry for the long comment and stay cool bud!!
    Thanks 😊

    If you only knew. Are company's make us go there. We don't get paid anything extra, and they will fire us. Wish NY dot would in force the 53foot trailer rule in the 5 boroughs.

    I PRAISE you !!
    You are a good person !
    I've been knee deep in the hoopla in NYC and it's nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fun.
    I certainly don't miss my produce days in Hunts Point.
    But I have run into NY'ers that have helped me get my bearings straight.
    Thank you for what you are doing 👍
