Pennsylvania Lawyer for Truck Enforcement Ticket
Commercial trucking and interstate shipping is the backbone of our economy. Unfortunately, with all those trucks rolling from state to state, they can be an easy target for police as they look to write revenue generating truck enforcement tickets.
Truck Enforcement Tickets can take several forms. The most common is when officers wait at or near state borders and conduct seemingly random safety checks. Police know that every state is different and each state has differing regulations, on top of U.S. Department of Transportation regulations. It is almost impossible for a truck to be in compliance with each state's regulations as it crisscrosses the country without being in conflict with another one of the regulations issued by a competing state. As a result, states like Pennsylvania, and even the City of Philadelphia have special Truck Enforcement Ticket divisions who only specialize in stopping out of state trucks and issuing revenue generating tickets.
Will this kind of citation affect my CDL or employment?
Some citations generated by Truck Enforcement units will not affect your CDL, but it depends on what type of citation you were given. Most of these citations, however, are very expensive. You should consult an attorney if you receive any citation involving truck regulations, since there's a high probability your CDL or employment can be affected.
