Homewood, East Hazel Crest to target overweight truck traffic on main roads

An agreement between Homewood and East Hazel Crest intends to more strictly enforce state code for heavyweight trucks on main thoroughfares in the village. 

The Homewood village board passed the accord Tuesday, Aug. 24.

In the agreement, police from East Hazel Crest will patrol certain portions of Homewood to survey for overweight vehicles as defined by Illinois vehicle code. East Hazel Crest has officers certified to cite violating trucks. Homewood police department would need to put officers through a 40-hour course and purchase both portable and stationary equipment to do the job itself.
