On-the-Road seminar

Trucking regulations can be complicated, and farm exemptions compound that complexity. Come join us at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at the Putnam County EMA Building in Hennepin, IL to find out what you need to know. 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 scheduled for 2018. Rules affected include: farmer exemptions, Harvest Season Emergency permit, longer trucks on local roads, Electronic Logging Devices, UCR filing deadline, anhydrous ammonia nurse tank movements, and proof of citizenship requirements. There will also be a walk-around of a truck.

Presenting the seminar will be Kevin Rund and Kirby Wagner who specialize in farm transportation issues for the Illinois Farm Bureau. Also presenting at the seminar will be Tom Wise, Unit Chief for IDOT.

The seminar is free, but advance registration is requested. Please call 309-364-2501 to reserve your place at the On-the-Road Seminar.
