Common Trucking Regulation Violations in Illinois

The federal government and the state of Illinois have strict regulations on commercial vehicles to ensure the safety of their drivers and other motorists and pedestrians on the road. Unfortunately, pressure to deliver loads on a tight schedule often encourages drivers to violate these standards.

Failure to comply with trucking regulations can lead to accidents with serious injuries and fatalities. Some of the most common trucking regulation violations include:

  • Hours of Service Violations: Truck drivers have a limited number of daily and weekly hours in which they are allowed to operate their vehicles. When these limits are exceeded, truck driver errors and fatigue become more likely.
  • Poor Truck Maintenance: There are minimum maintenance requirements for commercial vehicles. When drivers or trucking companies fail to perform basic maintenance on their trucks, truck equipment failure is a frequent result.
  • Cargo Overload or Misload: There are strict weight limits for large trucks driven on interstate highways. If the cargo carried by a truck exceeds these limits or is not loaded and distributed properly, the risk of serious accidents increases significantly.
  • Driving while Drunk or on Drugs: Commercial drivers are held to higher standards than other drivers when it comes to the use of alcohol and drugs. For example, a commercial truck driver will be in violation of DUI laws if they have a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of only .04%.
