An On-The-Road seminar will be held at Joe’s Place, 9716 E. Grant Hwy., Marengo on Wednesday, March 15 at 6:30 pm. Illinois Farm Bureau along with DeKalb, Kane, McHenry, and Winnebago-Boone County Farm Bureaus will be co-hosting this two-hour seminar that focuses on trucking laws, both new and well-worn, for farmers. It will also take a special look at the latest “Covered Farm Vehicle” exemptions, and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.
A lot of laws have changed in the past 2 years. In fact, just last July, the governor signed legislation adding a new exemption from the CDL. Prior to that, there were changes to regulations regarding the medical card, hours of service limitations, equipment inspection requirements, ATV operation, mobile phone use, out-of-state CDL use, post-trip inspections and more.
Also covered will be the recent changes and some of the more established but misunderstood rules, such as the USDOT Number, UCR registrations and driver’s license classifications.
Presenting the seminar will be Kevin Rund, from Illinois Farm Bureau, who has specialized in farm transportation issues for more than 30 years. The seminar and pizza buffet are free to farm members courtesy of the sponsoring County Farm Bureaus, but advance registration is required. To reserve your spot, please call 815-338-1520.
Be the voice, resource, and advocate for farm families and agriculture,
while promoting stewardship for today and future generations.
