Commercial Truck Violation Tickets Can Be Challenged in Court
If you have been accused of carrying a cargo that was more than the maximum axle weight allowed at a weigh station you have options. Simply paying the required fine means that you plead guilty to the charges and will have a conviction on your driving record. Traffic violation convictions can potentially lead to a commercial driver’s license (CDL) suspension and increased insurance rates.
These allegations and potential repercussions are worth fighting. One fine may not seem like a big deal, but points can add up quickly on a driving record and the impact can multiply on your finances and your career as a professional driver. This is in addition to the increasing pressures truckers already face day to day on the regular job, not to mention the pressure of increasing gas prices and stricter laws regulating phone use and other daily work matters.
