Success Stories: The Truck Driver

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Have you ever got into trouble with the law while doing your job?

Meet our client, a commercial truck driver from Canada. He had a spotless driving record, and frequently makes deliveries all across the United States. Some of his deliveries involve the transportation of hazardous materials, which, under the California Vehicle Code, have very stringent requirements.

Recently, our client was transporting hazardous materials from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. In the State of California, Hazardous Material is defined as a substance or material which is capable of posing an unreasonable risk to health, safety, and property when transported in a vehicle [California Vehicle Code (CVC) 353 and Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 171.8].

Being from Canada, he was not familiar with California law regarding the transportation of hazardous materials. He stopped at a weigh station for a normal inspection, where the unlocked compartment was discovered. He was then cited for hazardous materials in an unlocked compartment

Misdemeanor Charges for California Vehicle Code Section 32001(c)(5)

California’s Vehicle Code requires that hazardous cargo be in a locked compartment so that no unauthorized person can gain access to the materials. Upon citation, our client was not facing a mere traffic ticket. He was facing a misdemeanor conviction, a fine of approximately $4,000.00 and possible jail time.

When our client called us for help, we quickly got to work on researching the law, and all possible options as alternatives to jail time. We were able to use our experience and skill to convince the prosecutor that our client’s error was unintentional and that he had a driving record that was otherwise clean. The prosecutor agreed to reduce the charge to an infraction, and our client agreed to pay a fine of $110.00.

The Best Possible Outcome

With our help, our client did not have to go through the burden of a trial, spending time in jail or paying several thousand dollars in fines. In addition, the misdemeanor charge was dismissed against him. If he would have been found guilty of this misdemeanor charge he would have likely lost his job. He would have found it difficult to continue working internationally, as a misdemeanor conviction would likely have caused problems for him when trying to cross the US-Canada border. He also kept the points off his record, meaning his insurance rates will not increase.

When we informed our client of the outcome if his case he was an extremely happy man. We are certain that he will refer us people he knows who are facing criminal charges in the future.
