Who We are
The Illinois Truck Enforcement Association was founded in 2009 by suburban law enforcement officers who specialized in commercial vehicle enforcement. Together, they created a multi-disciplinary network of professionals who shared a vision to standardize and enhance professionalism in truck enforcement. Today, the ITEA stands 500 (+) members strong and continues to make strides in developing commercial vehicle enforcement standards, compliance training, and stakeholder networking building. The ITEA's vision is to increase roadway safety through collaboration, accountability, and robust communication.
Our Foundational Statements
The Illinois Truck Enforcement Association is founded on the
following principles and values.
The laws that regulate trucking in Illinois are complicated and extensive, which leads to enforcement that is not uniform across local boundaries. It is our goal to create standards of practice that correctly interprets the law while providing a baseline for consistent enforcement across jurisdictions.
The trucking industry is burdened by the need to work within the differing policies and procedures of hundreds of municipalities and counties throughout the State of Illinois. We seek to build a central resource point for the trucking industry to provide a database of information critical to their operations.
