When your truck passed through a Connecticut weigh station, did you receive a citation for having an overweight truck?
Every year, more than $1 million in fines is collected as a result of overweight truck violations logged at Connecticut weigh stations. This practice may bring revenue to the state and provide incentives for truckers to pay attention to weight requirements. However, an overweight trucking citation may also put your commercial drivers license (CDL) at risk.
In the past, an overweight truck violation would have resulted in a fine and an inconvenience. Now, an overweight truck violation can mean much more. If you are found guilty, points will be added to your CDL. Your ability to continue making a living as a commercial truck driver may be put at risk unnecessarily if you accumulate too many points.
Thats the bad news.
