A Trucking Company from the state of New York contacted our firm about a driver who was cited in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. This trucking company had sought our services before and again sought to have us defend a driver who might otherwise lose his CDL. The driver was charged with driving his truck after being placed out of service when a police officer found his log book to be ought of date in a routine traffic stop. If convicted of the violation for driving while ordered out of service, this New York truck driver would loose his commercial driver’s license.
At the hearing before the Magisterial District Judge in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, our law firm was able to successfully defend the driver and he was found not guilty of the violation of 75 Pa.C.S.A. §1606 (c)(1)iii – Prohibitions against violating an Out of Service Order.
