Numerous government regulations and high equipment costs are two of the

Common Trucker Vehicle Code Violations
Environmental and business regulations may be good or bad, largely depending
on your economic and political perspective. But some provisions in the
Vehicle Code, along with the way they are enforced, undoubtedly make California
a trucker un-friendly state.
Some of the most frequent violations include:
Overweight Violations: Inspectors are supposed to give truckers an opportunity to shift their
loads or offload some cargo before issuing these citations, but such leniency
is not always
Truck Speed Limit: The downhill grade from the Nevada border to Barstow is one of the most
highly-enforced roadway sections in the Golden State.
Lane Violation: As the Grapevine moves into Bakersfield and Fresno, the speed limit is
not as much of a problem, but the heavy traffic makes it difficult to
adhere to the no-left-lane rule.
Commercial drivers accrue
points at a 50 percent greater rate than non-commercial drivers.
