Illinois Oversize and Overweight Fines and Penalties

Under Illinois law (625 ILCS 5/15-112), “Any police officer having reason to believe that the weight of a vehicle and load is unlawful shall require the driver to stop and submit to a weighing.” The officer can use portable or stationary scales or, if not available, the officer can require that the vehicle be driven to the nearest available scale. If determined that the truck is overweight the officer will charge the driver accordingly and assess the appropriate fine amount set under 625 ILCS 5/15-111. Any person who refuses or fails to stop and submit his or her vehicle and load after being directed to do so by an authorized agent of the city, or who removes or causes the removal of any portion of the load prior to weighing, shall be fined not less than five hundred dollars ($500) and not more than two thousand dollars ($2,000).
