Truck Enforcement

The Buffalo Grove Police Department's Truck Enforcement Unit exists to provide safe passage through Buffalo Grove, for all motor vehicle traffic as they share the roads with larger and heavier commercial traffic. The Truck Enforcement Unit is a proud member of the Illinois Truck Enforcement Association.

The primary duties of the Truck Enforcement Unit are:
  • Enforcement of weight and size violations
  • Issuing permits for overweight and oversize vehicles using Village maintained highways
  • Education of local trucking companies in regard to local and State laws
  • Assisting the Illinois State Police with random portable scale roadblocks
  • Coordination between developers, trucking companies, and the Village with respect to truck routing in and out of commercial jobsites
  • Handling complaints from residents about truck specific problems
  • Checking for safety and drivers license classification violations


Effective February 1, 2012, all applications for overweight and oversize permits for Village of Buffalo Grove highways must be submitted using the online webform. This webform can be found at Illinois Truck Enforcement Association website.

Effective October 1, 2014, the Village of Buffalo Grove will no longer be using the above web form for the issuance of permits.  We will be switching to an online service, Oxcart Permits.
