New York Commercial Trucking Violations
New York commercial truck drivers not only risk heavy fines and penalties for violating New York commercial truck laws; they also risk losing their jobs. Even if the trucking company tells the driver that the company will take care of the traffic ticket for them, it is the driver’s responsibility to handle the ticket if it is written out in the driver’s individual name, giving you good reason to hire a New York Commercial Trucking Lawyer.
A few of the more common commercial trucking violations that New York traffic lawyers fight are:
- ● Off truck route
- ● Overloaded axles
- ● Overweight and overloaded vehicles
- ● Missing fire extinguishers
- ● Missing mirrors
- ● Missing DOT stamps
Some of these commercial truck tickets, such as overloaded consecutive axles, can have fines reaching more than $7,000. These fines, in addition to the possibility of losing their CDL, put New York Commercial truck drivers in a precarious position and in need of an experienced traffic ticket lawyer.
