I believe that truck restrictions apply to any commercial vehicle over 8.5 meters in length. A truck is allowed on any street if it needs to be there for a delivery. They are supposed to take the truck routes to the closest point possible and then leave the truck route, make the delivery and return to the truck route. James N. is a non truck route so from the west the closest point would be York and James. From there a truck is free to drive to there destination. If from there they needed to go to John S. the correct procedure is to go south to Cannon west to Queen South to Main and then east to John since James is not truck route from Cannon to Main.

As far as loading all roadways unless specifically signed are safe for trucks to drive on. Most commonly seen are bridge restrictions. This will also sometimes be seen on rural roads where they impose a weight limit per axle or a total weight restrictions. Within the city it is a lot less common. I believe Bay north or maybe Queen north is restricted to trucks under 10 tonnes.
