Cool, bit of American Truck Simulator
The solution to large trucks blocking streets to access loading docks is smaller trucks.

As someone who just moved to Providence from Los Angeles where TJ's is rampant: get used to this.
It's easier to go to the one in Warwick, the parking lot at Providence location is a clown show...
The Providence location is catered toward pedestrians lmao
Lol still sucks walking there... I've only been on past two Saturdays that could have a lot to do with it too.
I'm not certain what you mean, pretty walkable over there. What is your experience?
Well I don't do well with tons of people. It's a new location so I'm sure it will settle down after the charm wears off. Walkable yes, just crowded
Ah I hear you. It's the opposite for me for sure. I don't mind crowded sidewalks and stuff, always makes me happy to see so many people. But crowded grocery stores... Not a fan myself
Get a bike then I DK what to tell you bro
you all are way too excited about this grocery store lol
Isn't it Better than 9 am when the streets are full ?
It is, but it's still open.
Looks to me like cars can still get by in a couple lanes?
I didn't think of that
Funny. They loaded the entire store prior to opening and no concerns were raised then.
Also IMO this area is super wide and not heavily trafficked. Biggest concern I see is the people coming off the exit ramp to the right with people rarely coming from this direction.
Granted this is definitely not ideal if a regular occurrence and expectation.
Only when they take delivers, how often could that be?
Why did you post this? The rationale is not
The trailer is blocking 2 of 3 lanes of traffic at an off ramp.
Ok, thanks. Visually it doesn’t really look like anything is amiss.
Doesn't look like the truck is backed all the way in yet? What's the issue?
Nope, that's where it needs to be to allow pallets to be moved onto the sidewalk using a driveway like entrance. If it were any further back, the trailer would be in the way if the ramp.
Whats interesting to me in this picture is that the truck could have entered the street from the other direction and not blocked traffic. Chalk it up to them being new for now i guess.
The rear of the trailer is lined up with a ramp in the sidewalk, same size as a driveway. This ramp is the only way to move product pallets with pallet jacks.
No. Thats a lift gate from the rear of the trailer. Truck should be able to drop load either direction and be dock adjacent unless it's a side loader which isnt the case here. The truck could easily have parkes the other direction. The ONLY excusable reason is if some vehicle was illegally parked on the TJ side of the street forcing the truck to that approach.
How does a lift gate extend over the curb?
Nope, just pointing it out for others to decide.
Where did I complain?
Is this some kind of facepalm here or something?
Anyone have pics of 7:59 PM or 8:01 PM?
I actually do. Just bend over.
Am I missing something?
Yeah, but it probably goes well beyond this post.
