The department has a squad equipped with a set of portable truck scales and officers are specially trained for truck overweight and safety violation enforcement. Truck traffic through the village has been increasing steadily for several years and when Joliet Road closed, truck volume increased sharply. The department's officers are committed to ensuring trucks passing through or working in the village are operating in a safe condition and are of legal weight and properly equipped. It is preferred to give 48 hours notice.
If an oversized/overweight vehicle plans to travel through or work in the village, an Overweight Truck Permit is required.
