A truck driver in California accumulates points much faster than a non-commercial driver.
Commercial drivers in their commercial vehicles in California accumulate points one and one-half times faster than non-commercial drivers; for example, a two-point offense for a regular motorist is a three-point offense for a trucker. And that is not all:
A speeding ticket that just means a fine and an insurance rate increase for a private driver in Kern County can be devastating to a commercial driver. An experienced traffic ticket attorney can quickly identify any legal or factual defense that you may have. If no defense is available, an attorney can lower the points. Because speeding tickets are essentially a revenue-producing tool, most prosecutors are eager to negotiate and collect what money they can as quickly as they can.
