(they may have changed the line in the movie, but JRR Tolkien wrote it this way, and repeated the line 4 times during the stand-off)

It is a public road on which the laws of physics will not allow a tractor trailer rig to transit legally.

When were those signs posted? Do you have any pics of the signs? Did you actually sit and watch the LEO write a ticket. Your post smells like it came flying out of your ass.

I was sitting at the overlook at the dam, there was a Tennessee trooper on the opposite side of the road. A semi came through, and the cop jumped in her car to follow the semi. I was camped at Abrams Creek, so 5-10 minutes after the truck and trooper took off, I headed out as well. Found the Semi on the side of the road with Trooper writing a ticket. Didn't stop to ask.

Perhaps she had another reason to pull him :dunno, I thought it odd that she would jump after the truck, but ignored all the Bikes and 3 Wheelers obviously breaking the speed limit.

Also the next day heading back into the gap 2 other semis sitting in the same pull offs just west of Deals Gap getting tickets as well. Again :dunno I didn't see the circumstances that got them pulled.



You're right the signs don't say not allowed...

They get pulled over for failure to maintain lane, just like a lot of regular cars, bikes, and trucks get pulled over for crossing the double yellow.
