Truck Enforcement

 

The O’Fallon Police Department Truck Enforcement Unit began in 2007.  The Truck Enforcement Unit exists to provide safe passage through O’Fallon for all motor vehicle traffic as they share the roads with larger and heavier commercial traffic.  The truck enforcement unit is a proud member of the Illinois Truck Enforcement Association (ITEA).  There are currently two officers assigned to the Truck Enforcement Unit who are certified by the State of Illinois and the ITEA.

 

The primary duties of the Truck Enforcement Unit are:

  • Enforcement of weight and size violations;
  • Issuing permits for overweight and oversize vehicles using City maintained streets and highways;
  • Education of local trucking companies in regards to local and State laws;
  • Assisting the Illinois State Police with random portable scale roadblocks;
  • Coordinating between developers, trucking companies, and the City with respect to truck routing in and out of commercial jobsites;
  • Handling complaints from residents about truck specific problems;
  • Checking trucks for safety and driver’s license classification violations
