Truckin' in the Big Apple: Navigating the streets of New York City

For those that might believe truck driving is not a stressful job, try navigating the streets of a city. For a true test of driving skill, try driving a tractor-trailer around the streets of New York City during rush hour, and then, finding a place to park your rig to make a delivery. These pictures, shot recently on the streets of New York, give a glimpse into the life of a city truck driver.

For more on how congestion is becoming an ever-growing problem for trucking, you can see some of the latest stats from a recent Texas A&M Transportation Institute report on urban mobility at this link: http://d2dtl5nnlpfr0r.cloudfront.net/tti.tamu.edu/documents/mobility-report-2012.pdf.
