Federal regulations require you to know what is in your truck, where you are going and when, and how you plan on getting there. Your truckers log should contain all of this information and more. You may have been cited with a trucking log violation after an accident, at a weigh station or under any other circumstances involving law enforcement. Conviction for an alleged violation may add points to your commercial drivers license (CDL), putting your ability to continue to operate a truck at risk.
I am Douglas J. Wells, a Greenwich defense attorney who is committed to protecting the livelihoods of truckers who have received citations while traveling through Connecticut. If you have received any type of citation while behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle get experienced legal representation right away.
I understand that you are under pressure to travel as many miles as you can in as short a time frame as you can accomplish. I know that you have been trained in the importance of completing all required entries in your logbook. However, I understand that it is easy to omit steps or to fall behind. I also know that the information in your log book may not reflect the reality of your actual trucking activities.
I can help provide a vigorous defense against all alleged trucking log violations, including:
Any drivers log violation or any other type of violation, such as an overweight truck violation, is a reason to contact a lawyer. I represent both Connecticut residents and truck drivers who live out of state.
