Florida Highway Patrol and Motor Carrier Compliance Office officers will begin enforcing a ban on commercial trucks from part of Florida’s Turnpike in Miami-Dade County in May.

Trucks will not be allowed to travel down the 27 miles between the Interstate 75 and Caribbean Boulevard exits. The regulation also applies to the Okeechobee and Bird Road mainline toll plazas.

Violators may face as much as $115.50 in fines and have three points added to their driver’s license.
