Reasonable restrictions.

Many Bay Area cities are making an effort to accommodate truckers. Some do better than others, but at least they're trying.

Oakland has many areas where residential streets run right next to heavy industrial areas. They also need to keep trucks from short-cutting off of the 880 freeway.

Poplar Street at West Grand Avenue.

No Through Trucks, but Local Trucks Okay. Makes sense!

In any event, Oakland is not known to enforce these signs.

The old Oakland Truck Stop is located at 8255 San Leandro Street, just south of Hegenberger. You can usually find a parking spot along the east side of the road, under the elevated BART tracks. This is a tiny, yet nearly full service, facility.
