Wythe County CDL LawyerWythe County CDL Lawyer

Speeding Tickets, EDL / Log Compliance, & Weight and Equipment Violations

Interstate commercial drivers with Commercial Driver’s Licenses (“CDLs”) must comply not only with state traffic laws that affect us all, but also with significant rules and regulations (the “trucking regulations”) promulgated under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”) that affect only those drivers engaged in interstate commercial transportation.  When drivers are charged with speeding or other Virginia state traffic laws, or with violations of the trucking regulations, we stand ready to vigorously defend drivers and to seek the best outcome possible in every case.

What You Should Know if You Have a CDL About Speeding Tickets or Non-Compliance with FMSCA Regulations

As an experienced interstate driver, you understand the Hours of Service, Electronic Logging Device (“ELD”), safety, weight, and equipment regulations to which you must comply.  You also undoubtedly know of the substantial consequences that speeding, other moving violations, and non-compliance with the federal trucking regulations may have on your ability to continue driving.

So do we.

We take representation of CDL holders seriously, as we know what is at stake for them and for their families.  We are tenacious in seeking the best outcome for our clients, and to fighting for dismissal of all charges whenever there is a basis to do so.

With 30+ years of representing clients, including dozens of drivers charged with speeding, reckless driving, and other traffic charges, we have obtained dismissal and significant victories for clients in Wythe County and other Virginia counties.  As an experienced Wythe County trial lawyer, firm founder Mark Hurt has represented clients successfully before all levels of Virginia courts, including the Virginia Supreme Court, as well as the Supreme Court of the United States.

Virginia Speeding Tickets – Your Speeding Ticket May be for Reckless Driving

Most non-Virginia resident drivers are surprised to learn that in Virginia, if you’re charged with going over 85 mph, your ticket is not for speeding, but instead for the more serious charge of reckless driving.  Fortunately, we are able to represent drivers charged both with speeding and reckless driving in court without the driver needing to be present in most cases.

When we accept a speeding ticket case, we work tenaciously in seeking to get charges dropped whenever possible, or charges dismissed upon compliance with other terms and conditions.  Our work begins as soon as we accept a case.  Once we learn about the circumstances of a ticket, we often will negotiate with the prosecution for dismissal, if the circumstances warrant such outcome, or another favorable result.  While we can’t guaranty a victory, we routinely are able to get drivers significantly better outcomes than simply paying their tickets, and our clients do not need to take time off of work and travel to Virginia to contest their tickets.

Violations of Federal Trucking Regulations

In addition to representing CDL holders in matters involving speeding and other Virginia traffic laws, we also represent drivers in matters concerning violations of federal trucking regulations, including those concerning Hours of Service matters (and compliance with these matters including the use of Electronic Logging Devices, or “ELDs”), alleged equipment and weight violations, and other alleged violations of the interstate trucking regulations.  As Wythe County CDL Lawyers, we not only are familiar with these rules and regulations, but also to the defenses that are commonly available to these charges.

Client Review

Frankie was the best. She helped me mentally, lawfully, she communicates and I appreciate her. I would never ever contact anyone else other than her if I’m ever in a situation in VA and if this law firm can cross state lines I would pay them! I felt so secure and safe! Thanks so much!
