Truck / Traffic Unit

Home > Departments > C.C.S.P.D. >Patrol Division > Truck / Traffic Unit

The Truck/Traffic Unit has specially trained and highly motivated officers assigned to enhance efforts to make the roads safer for the citizens of Cook County.

The DUI enforcement teams conduct roadside safety checkpoints throughout the County on a regular basis to ensure impaired drivers are arrested and removed from the streets. In 2009, the DUI Unit arrested more than 300 drunk/drugged drivers from the streets.

The Truck Unit sets up temporary weigh stations, utilizing mobile scales, throughout the County.  In 2009, this unit cited hundreds of commercial vehicles for overweight violations.  Trucks hauling more than their specified weight can damage roads and adversely affect the truck’s braking system and possibly making the truck unsafe.  The efforts of this unit combat these issues by periodically conducting weight and equipment safety inspections of trucks travelling on roadways in Cook County.
