Overweight Truck Enforcement

Overweight trucks can damage our streets and cost taxpayers money; so Broadview Police Officers with specialized training are always on the look out for signs that a truck might be overweight.

Additionally, these officers schedule truck details/operations with the Illinois State Police and other local law enforcement agencies throughout the year. During these roadside checks, all commercial, construction and garbage trucks are checked for proper traffic weight and given a thorough safety inspection by the State Police Motor Carrier Safety Officers. Through these roadside safety checks we limit the number of unsafe commercial vehicles traveling on Broadview roads.
