Do Not Take Chances and Do Not Handle Issues Alone
It can be tempting to handle certain traffic violations, such as speeding, by simply paying the fine and moving on. However, CDL holders are held to a higher standard than typical motorists, and admitting guilt by paying a fine can prove to have disastrous consequences.
In addition to speeding violations, truck drivers are also subject to citations for other traffic offenses, including log book violations, failure to enter a weigh station, failure to take required breaks and failure to properly secure a load. All of these are serious violations and may even result in misdemeanor charges. Motorists in Mecklenburg courts will often be offered dispositions that seem helpful or advantageous on the surface, but may actually be injurious to the motorist with a CDL or an out-of-state driver's license. That is why we will take an aggressive stance when it comes to defending against these types of charges.
