Trucking violations

New Jersey Trucking Violation Defense Lawyers

Obviously, truck drivers are susceptible to the same tickets for moving violations and regulatory violations that a car driver could receive. Please visit our Traffic Ticket page for general information regarding tickets.

In New Jersey, truck drivers must also worry about two additional categories of violations, which could result in much more serious penalties than regular traffic tickets. First, there are a variety of different violations that are only given to truck drivers and truck owners for regulatory violations. These include overweight trucks, failing to display proper decals, failing to inspect the truck, parking violations for violating loading and unloading rules, and similar violations. The good news for truck drivers is that these violations are not usually very serious on their own, and in most cases the truck owner (who is usually the truck driver’s employer) is responsible for those regulatory violations. The bad news for companies that own trucks or employ truck drivers is that these violations add up quickly and can get very expensive over time. A skilled New Jersey trucking violation attorney can assist truck owners in avoiding expensive penalties. But that leads to the second category of charges that truck drivers must worry about. Because trucks are more heavily scrutinized (they are frequently stopped for inspections on highways and police often stop trucks when they see that decals are out of date or improper) truck drivers get stopped a lot more often than most other drivers. If a truck driver is then caught with a suspended license, or without a license, or certain types of speeding and other moving violations, truck drivers could be penalized very harshly – there are several trucking violations that carry mandatory loss of license penalties, and this will seriously affect a truck driver’s livelihood because losing a license could result in a truck driver getting fired.

Truck Ticket/Violation Defense Approach (Why Us?)

If you receive a ticket and must appear in Municipal Court, you will need a lawyer to protect your rights. Even if the charge is a relatively minor one, we advise our clients to still consider the case serious because a conviction or guilty plea could result in high fines, points, jail time, and suspension of your license, which would seriously affect your ability to earn a living. Our firm will fight vigorously for you and help you achieve the best results for your case. We are skilled at analyzing the evidence that the state intends to use against you and we fight to exploit any holes in the prosecutor’s case. We also spend a considerable amount of time in negotiating with the prosecutor so that our client’s get the best plea offers possible. Once a plea offer is made, we counsel our clients about whether it makes sense to accept a plea offer or take their case to trial, where the prosecutor would have to prove all of the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

The prosecutor will not simply listen to your side of the story and drop the case against you. It is important to be represented by a skilled Municipal Court/traffic ticket defense attorney.
