A trucking company is suing to overturn state meal and break laws for long
Penske as asked the Supreme Court to review the Ninth Circuit's decision in
Dilts v. Penske. The company says that the California meal and break laws run afoul of
the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act of 1994, which prohibits
states from passing laws which relate to interstate trucking prices. Truckers
argue that the state laws are related solely to safety.
Both sides maintain that their position benefits consumers, either through
lower costs or safer roads.
The state has a number of laws affecting commercial drivers, especially
when it comes to keeping a commercial drivers' license.
An attorney practicing in Fresno can reduce both the direct and indirect
costs of a traffic ticket. That is, a lawyer can reduce both the fines
and the points, to keep you on the road.
