Overweight Ticket Defense For Commercial Truck Drivers
As a commercial truck driver, you count on your driving record to help you to keep your job. Whether you work for a trucking company or you are an owner-operator of your own rig, it is important that you keep the total weight of your vehicle and your load under a specified amount. When you go over that limit, you face getting a citation. If you were caught with too much weight on your commercial vehicle, you may wish to consult with a Los Angeles overweight tickets attorney for assistance.
By working with a traffic ticket defense attorney, you may be able to prevent such a ticket from affecting your driving record and ultimately your job. In addition, these tickets come with hefty fines that can run into the thousands of dollars.
While your employer may pay for these types of costs as a part of your job, there are times when you may be held responsible for payment of fines, including those incurred when you do not keep your vehicle within the allowable weight limit.
How Much Will You Be Fined?
A Los Angeles overweight tickets attorney may be able to help you have the charges reduced or may even be able to have the ticket dismissed with a good defense. If you have your charges dismissed, you can avoid paying the hefty fines and can avoid having points added to your commercial driver’s license. This can help you with your employment and insurance situations.
