Speeding ticket in POV (update)

Got a speeding ticket for 81 in a 65 I was advised by alot of you to hire an attorney. I just spoke to an attorney who said theres nothing he can do because of masking laws (which i though was for driving school or a defferal)! What do i do now? Just pay the ticket or should i speak to another attorney? Thanks

Personal vehicle speeding ticket

25 over is reckless driving 16 is just a normal ticket that holds 4 points

You absolutely need to hire an attorney to fight it. If convicted it will have lasting consequences. Not only is your ticket for 16 over but that counts as reckless or careless driving depending on your state. If you're convicted of 2 or "serious" infractions like speeding 15 over, reckless driving, following too close etc you lose your CDL for 60 days. Look at your company handbook. Some companies require you inform them if you receive any tickets (personal and company vehicles), others only require to be informed if you're convicted. We have a couple drivers that had excessive speeding tickets that the company isn't allowing them to drive for 1 year.

Other than this how is your driving record? Regardless, hire a lawyer. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to discuss the facts and go over pricing if you choose to hire them.

Truck stop parking

25 an hour and ot after 40... and yes it is always the same load as its auto parts for GM we bid on new routes every 6 months as its a union job. everything from an 8 hour day to a 12-14 hour day! I enjoy it

What do they pay you to go drive 2 hours down, get Dubbed Down & then Run back 2 hours with it? Do you pick the same stuff of each time?

is it acceptable to just pull through a fuel island and park infront of it and park for a minute?

That's it Ron - that's how you do it. Just don't sit there for more than 12-15 minutes. You won't be bothering anyone if you just go in and make your purchase, maybe use the restroom, and then move on.

Truck stop parking

Ive been driving local for about a year now, i drive 2 hours there get loaded then 2 hours back get unloaded and go home, and i fuel at the yard. With this being my first driving job ive never been to a truck stop. But sometimes id like to stop and grab a coffee, pop, or a snack but never do as i dont really know where to park i dont want to take up a fuel island and i dont want to back into a spot to run in for 2 minutes. Are there pull through spots or is it acceptable to just pull through a fuel island and park infront of it and park for a minute? Thanks

CB Radio Question

So I drive local or regional whatever you want to call it I drive about 2 hours and 30 minutes each way to the same place everyday we have assigned tractors but some days 3rd shift isn't back yet so i end up having to taking a different tractor. None of them are equipped with cb's which is quite annoying id like to know if theres any sort of cb's that i would be able to pack up at the end of my shift quickly. Thanks
