Motor Vehicle Regulations for Illinois Farmers
Trucking regulations got you scratching your head? Hearing conflicting explanations?
To sort truth from conjecture and fact from rumor come join us at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 7th at the Reynolds Legion, 501 N Main St, Reynolds, Illinois.
Mercer and Rock Island Counties will be co-hosting this two-hour seminar that focuses on trucking laws for farmers—both new and well-worn. It’ll take a special look at the latest “Covered Farm Vehicle” exemptions and you'll have the chance to ask those trucking questions that you can’t seem to find the answers for anywhere else.
A lot of laws have changed in the past 18 months! In fact, just last July the Governor signed legislation adding a new exemption from the CDL. Prior to that we’ve seen changes to regulations regarding: the medical card, hours of service limitations, equipment inspection requirements, ATV operation, mobile phone use, out-of-state CDL use, post-trip inspections, and more.
We’ll cover those recent changes and some of the more-established but still misunderstood rules, too, such as the USDOT Number, UCR registrations, and driver’s license classifications.
Presenting the seminar will be Kevin Rund who has specialized in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau® for more than 30 years. Also confirmed is Cory Malek of District 7 Illinois State Police.
The seminar is free courtesy of your county and state Farm Bureaus®, but advance registration is requested. Please call the Mercer County Farm Bureau at (309) 582-5116 or the Rock Island County Farm Bureau at (309) 736-7432 to reserve your place at the On-the-Road Seminar.
Come join us and get your trucking questions answered.
