A car drives along South Boundary in Aiken. The state Department of Transportation asked the city council to consider prohibiting large trucks and tractor-trailers from using the road as a through-way. Resident Luther Stohlman said he has seen trucks hitting tree limbs, bringing some down. City Manager Roger LeDuc said there will be no ban. Instead, the council wants arborists to determine which trees to trim.  Kendrick Brinson/Staff
