Vehicle Classification Information – New York State Thruway

Vehicle Classification Information

Vehicle classification is based on the height of the vehicle over the first two axles and the total number of axles, including any towed vehicles or trailers.  Vehicles under 7 feet 6 inches in height are considered “LOW” (L).  Vehicles 7 feet 6 inches in height or greater are considered “HIGH” (H).

The total number of axles plus the height designation equals the vehicle class as shown in the table (Figure 1) below. The diagram (Figure 2) below shows approximate vehicle heights in relation to the toll booth. Diagram (Figure 3) below shows examples of axle counts on various vehicles.   Example: Most two-axle passenger vehicles are Class 2L.

Helpful information can also be found in the Frequently Asked Questions. (Discount applies to E-ZPassNY accounts only).

Vehicle Repossession | FTC Consumer Information

Chances are you rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to go — and when you need to go — whether it’s to work, school, the grocery store, or the soccer field. But if you’re late with your car payments, or in some states, if you don’t have adequate auto insurance, your vehicle could be taken away from you.

When you finance or lease a vehicle, your creditor or lessor has important rights that end once you’ve paid off your loan or lease obligation. These rights are established by the contract you signed and the law of your state. For example, if you don’t make timely payments on the vehicle, your creditor may have the right to “repossess” — ­or take back your car without going to court or warning you in advance. Your creditor also may be able to sell your contract to a third party,

Renting a Car | FTC Consumer Information

Need to rent a car for your vacation or business travels? Comparing prices online can save you a bundle. But make sure you compare the total cost — not just the advertised rate — because fees and options can increase the base price dramatically.

Keep these things in mind as you start your search for a rental car.

Size Matters

The size of the rental car can impact the price you pay. Terms like “compact,” “mid-size,” and “luxury” can vary across rental car companies. To illustrate car sizes, companies usually provide car models or suggest how many passengers the car seats safely.

Shop and Compare

Search across several websites for the type of car you’re interested in renting. To get an idea of the best price you can get, search for rates at individual rental car company websites and price comparison websites.

Still not convinced? OK,

provided by Google.  The last time I looked there were
125,000+ web pages warning us of bicycle u-lock weaknesses.

I know what you’re thinking. The manufacturer of that particular u-lock has
probably fixed the design fault. Am I right? Well, yes, that’s probably true.
They would be daft not to. If so you’re probably safe until someone works out
another way to break a u-lock.  Unfortunately you will not have to wait too long.
As you can see from the movie, it didn’t involve heavy investment in R&D to

The Recumbent Bicycle and Human Powered Vehicle Information Center

Most
of the information about car aerodynamics seems to be centered around generating
downforce. While this may be needed for race cars, the average 3000+
pound car driving at speeds below 90 MPH does not need to be concerned
with downforce. If you are trying to improve the efficiency of your
vehicle, reducing the
coefficient of drag (Cd) should be the main
concern. 



Rationale 




In this day and age of expensive fuel and inefficient vehicles, it makes sense
both economically and ecologically to conserve as much fuel as possible. To
accomplish this, you could go out and buy another car with better
mileage, but there are other options. This article focuses on how to optimize your current vehicle. 


The example vehicle is a 1998 Nissan Maxima. This is a rather boxy
4 door sedan with quite a lot of ground

South Rim

Looking to exchange four wheels for two? Bicycling is a great way to experience the South Rim. Cyclists can enjoy approximately 13 miles (21 km) of roads and Greenway Trails that allow for more intimate explorations along the rim. If you get tired, load your bike on one of the park’s bicycle-friendly shuttle buses – there is a bus stop every one-half to one-mile along the 13 mile-stretch.

Bicycles are allowed on all paved and unpaved roads on the South Rim. Be good to yourself and the environment – ride instead of drive.
