A new rule banning certain trucks from traveling on the Harris Grade is one step closer to reality. The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the first reading of the rule this afternoon. It would restrict cars and trucks with trailers more than 30 feet long from driving on Harris Grade.
"It is kinda windy and it is a high grade, but I feel a truck could go through there with no problem. Just watch your speed and I feel its doable," said Robert Bernal, a trucker.
County public works and the California Highway Patrol pushed for the restriction... after seeing a spike in accidents there last year.
