Types of CDL Violations

The standard set of Trucker Tickets are:

  • Overheight
  • Overweight
  • Overlength
  • Combination Vehicle (City and State)
  • Disobey Traffic Control Device
  • Operating on a Parkway
  • Equipment Violations

If you take your interstate legal rig off an interstate highway in New York City, you are suddenly overwide, overlong (2 violations), and in violation of at least one traffic regulation. The typical incorporated driver or trucking company is shocked to find out that not only will the New York City Court not accept a plea of guilty without an Attorney physically present in Court, but that the potential fines are several thousand dollars. Our firm can appear on your behalf, leaving you on the road, and we can normally reduce the fines significantly.

Other common CDL violations involve what the news calls “misplaced tractor-trailers.” Many truckers who aren’t familiar with a certain area, end up on our Parkway system by accident. Considering Parkways have low bridges, there is a high potential for disaster. If you have a lot of tickets in hand, don’t be surprised; that is standard procedure in the New York City area for Trucking Violations. Any driver with a CDL needs to be aware of the ticketing practices.

CDL Violations are not the same as State violations. We understand that the Code of Federal Regulations is much stricter than the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law and that “out of service” means “out of a job”.
