Case #: 2015 CT ***
Our client was pulled over an alleged safety violation while driving a large truck pulling a heavy trailer. Our client possessed a commercial driver’s license (CDL) from the state of Georgia. The Florida Highway Patrolman believed the gross weight of the truck and trailer required a CDL class that he believed our client did not possess. The Trooper issued our client a criminal citation for driving outside of his classification. It was our belief and argument that the Trooper should never have written our client for this violation. Immediately upon receiving the case, our firm worked on determining the differences between our client’s Georgia CDL and the Florida requirement the Trooper charged him for not possessing. This information, coupled with information provided by our client’s supervisor regarding the actual combined gross weight of the truck and trailer led us to getting all criminal charges against our client dismissed.
