Truckers (OOIDA) Ask 7th Circuit to Put Brakes on Indiana Toll for Heavy Vehicles

States cannot unfairly single out heavy vehicles in their operation of toll roads, a trucking association challenging Indiana’s toll system argued before a Seventh Circuit panel Monday.

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association claims a toll increase imposed only on commercial vehicles in Indiana is unfair and that the state can’t use the funds for projects unrelated to the road in question.

A federal class action led by OOIDA and several trucking companies was filed last year after a 35% increase went into effect on Indiana’s only toll road, which spans 157 miles of the Hoosier State from Ohio to Chicago.
