As a commercial truck driver, your driver’s license is connected
to your livelihood. Losing it or having it suspended is not an option
if you want to continue earning a living. The California point system
can quickly put your income at risk. Since traffic school is not an option
to remove points from infractions, every point is worth fighting to keep
off your record.
All drivers in California need to be concerned about point accumulation
on their driving record, but it is more difficult for commercial truckers.
First, you spend more time on the road than most drivers. Secondly, there
are infractions that only apply to large trucks, like log book and large
load violations. Thirdly, taking a class to avoid a point isn’t
available, so every point counts toward a possible suspension.
Fighting Every Ticket Is Worth the Investment
Points can add up fast when you are on the road sixty to seventy hours
a week. Every ticket is worth fighting to avoid points that could lead
suspension. A suspension is one thing, but even one ticket can make a huge difference
in whether a good employer wants to keep you on or the insurance on your
rig goes through the roof.
Since the stakes are higher for you as a commercial driver, you need to
look at every option in avoiding a new ticket on your record. Having an
experienced lawyer on your side that knows the California commercial traffic
laws inside and out can give you an edge on beating almost any ticket.
From overweight loads and lane changes to speeding and log book infractions,
you need a lawyer that can do the needed research to find a way to get
as many tickets dismissed or reduced as possible.
When it comes to protecting your job, you need to be proactive in keeping
driving points off your record. Even if it is your first ticket, it probably
will not be your last, so fighting to keep it off your record is worth
every penny. In the long run, it can protect your job and keep you on the road.
