On-The-Road Seminar Motor Vehicles Rules For Illinois Farmers

02/03/2019 @ 4:30 pm

Trucking regulations can be complicated, and farm exemptions compound that problem. It seems everyone has a different answer to your question.  Come join us at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26 at the Will County Farm Bureau® office at 100 Manhattan Road in Joliet to find out what you need to know.

 

In conjunction with Will County and the Illinois Farm Bureau®, we’re hosting a two-hour seminar that focuses on trucking laws specifically for farmers.  We’ll introduce you to new rules, remind you of the old ones that still apply, and help you to figure out whether exemptions are available.

 

Throughout it all, you'll have the chance to ask those farm trucking questions that everyone seems to have an opinion about, but no one can agree on an answer.

 

Trucking laws have been reshaped in recent years with more changes yet to come.  Rules recently affected include:  farmer exemptions, Harvest Season permit, Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), waivers for insulin-related diabetic drivers, a new class “C” license plate, Covered Farm Vehicle options for small trucks, and the UCR payment schedule and fees for 2019.

 

Presenting the seminar will be Kevin Rund and Kirby Wagner who specialize in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau®. Take-home materials covering these topics will be provided.

 

The seminar is free courtesy of your county and state Farm Bureaus®, but advance registration is requested.  Please call 815- 727-4811 to reserve your place at the On-the-Road Seminar.
