Different Rules for Truck Regulatory

August 7, 2013

Four-county truck regulatory deputy Tim Gillespie is responsible for making the roads safe for truck drivers as well as drivers of other vehicles as well as protecting county roads from overweight trucks.

Tim Gillespie, the Multi-Agency Truck Regulatory Deputy for Barnes, Stutsman, LaMoure and Dickey Counties, doesn't need probable cause to pull over a truck he believes to be overweight. All he needs is a reasonable suspicion that a truck may be overweight or bearing faulty equipment to pull the driver over.
Trucks need to be kept at higher standards than passenger vehicles, said Gillespie. "A truck has to be up to snuff," he said, "because a loaded truck can be a 180,000 pound weapon."
