This truck bypass is optional for large rigs, but some are not – Orange County Register

Q Do semi-trucks have to take the bypass at the El Toro Y interchange in southern Orange County? And if so, can the California Highway Patrol quote them if they don’t take it? I live nearby and sometimes I see semis going straight instead of taking the bypass mentioned on freeway signs right there.

A To get the answer, Patrick Honk called Rafael Reynosoa CHP officer and spokesman from the San Juan Capistrano train station building, which isn’t really that far from the bypass.

For this particular workaround he said:

“The truck bypass is intended for trucks. However, any motorist can take the truck bypass. In addition, trucks do not have to use the truck bypass.”

Truck bypasses are designed to assist truck drivers and provide routes that are often flatter than simply staying on the main route. In addition, the bypasses are intended to get the truck giants out of the way of the rest of the traffic at crucial points in the motorway system.

Further north, California has truck-only lanes, one pair on Freeway 5 off State Route 14 in Los Angeles County and the other on the southbound 5 near Grapevine in Kern County.

Big rigs have to take these routes as signs tell them to. Cars and small trucks are encouraged via signs to stay in the main route, but they can legally drive in these truck-only lanes if they choose.

The key to the signs in these places is colour: green suggest what needs to be done, while black and white is the law. This truck bypass is optional for large rigs, but some are not – Orange County Register
