68K20 x Drill Cali made me go commercial reg on my VW rabbit truck ($40).
I was OK with it once I realized it meant I could park in loading zones to procure company burritos.

DMANbluesfreak I have U of I Collegiate plates (see below). As far as I know, they're the same on cars as trucks when you opt for them (they cost like $40 more per year). So maybe I did find a loophole when I got these - though that wasn't the driving factor for me.



On their website, it states: "Collegiate license plates are multi-year and may be displayed on passenger vehicles, trucks and vans weighing 8,000 pounds or less and sport utility vehicles." So it's possible they made their own loophole and haven't realized it (or don't care) yet.

ChiXJeff <shrug> When I escaped IL 9 years ago, pickups were all considered to be commercial vehicles & plated as such (yes, I had a B plate on my '99 2500 and no badging beyond the manufacturer's.) I never got hassled with it, I also made sure to not give them the excuse. If you've got something other than a commercial plate, then A) something has changed, B) you've found a loophole, or c) the clerk who gave you your plates goofed.

Turns out there the truck restriction is lifted between I-55 & the Spaceship, I mean, Soldier Field.
I read the bulletin you're referencing and it's just worded so stupidly.

It says any truck that is designed for hauling commercial freight isn't allowed, and one could argue that a non-commercially licensed pickup truck wasn't designed in such a way.

I doubt any police officer pulls over a pickup truck without some sort of commercial designation on it (not just a DOT number, but any decal). And I feel like I may be even more in the clear with U of I plates instead of B truck plates.

Who knows. What a stupid law.

If this is true, it's definitely not enforced. I drive my truck on lakeshore fairly regularly. I've never had any police in the city limits even take a second look at my truck, like those do in the suburbs.

Mr. Mindless Probably DC area only, they really seem to love all sorts of truck restrictions. I've never heard of such a thing.

I've run my duallies all over the east coast for the last 5-6 years, including around and through most of the big cities. When I'm towing I try to stick to truck routes (since I'm usually nearly as long & wide) - and I usually am towing - maybe that's why I haven't seen anything about dually restrictions?

That thing to me seems interesting as a novelty but not much more. Put some weight on it and the ride must be terrible with one ton suspension and such a short wheel base.

Most laws like that have clauses like "except when engaged in ____" that wind up covering most reasons one would want to park a work truck on a city street.

It's kinda like living life in a stretched picture I guess. Lifting it seems like the key bad decision with this one.

eh, would suck for plowing, no traction in the snow, too wide of fenders

would suck for towing because the frame's probably chopped and ghetto booger welded together
