Overweight Ticket in California

 

Overweight Ticket in CaliforniaOverweight trucks in California make considerable damage to roads and bridges every year. That is why every trucker has to apply for a permit to use certain roads for each trip and officials make sure they can travel safely on those roads. Usually the truckers are asked to reduce their weight. That increases the number of overweight tickets in California. The fines for overweight tickets are usually very high but you can try to fight your ticket. Call (866) 780-1234 to consult with a traffic lawyer at our office.
