Illinois State Police recently announced a new program in which troopers will target truck drivers who are unsafe.
The operation is going by the name “Operation Bypass,” and its overarching goal is to seek out commercial vehicle drivers who are bypassing the open weigh stations throughout the Will County area, according to a news release from state police.
All vehicles weighing 8 tons or more must stop to be weighed when the scale is open. Local troopers will be enforcing all laws to remove unsafe vehicles and cut down on personal injury crashes, according to the release.
For commercial motor vehicle enforcement questions, call Master Sgt. DeAnn Falat at 815-726-6377.
