On Aug. 30, a resident of Standard Avenue called 911 and reported that a semitruck had driven through
his yard.

Brookfield police were able to track the Freightliner to one of the industries in Masury and approached
the driver, a Deerfield, Ohio, man, who told police that his GPS had sent him down Locust Street and he
did not see a sign stating that trucks are not allowed on that street.

It’s not the first time this has happened in Masury, and won’t be the last. Brookfield officials have
received numerous complaints over the years of trucks that have veered off the main roads to take
smaller roads not meant for big rigs. These trucks have damaged yards, mail boxes, street signs and storm
sewer covers.

promoRoad Supt. Jaime Fredenburg told the trustees Sept. 13 that the road crew had put up new “no trucks”

“Every street in that area has a ‘no truck’ sign,” he said. “I don’t know what else to do. We’ll see what
happens. At least the police can address any trucks that are on the roads.”

The driver in the Aug. 30 incident was cited, and the driver contacted his company, which said it would
pay to repair the damage to the caller’s front yard, police said
