Trucking Violations
New York Trucking Violations Defense Attorney

At the Law Offices of Barry S. Jacobson in Brooklyn, we apply our long experience with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) to help independent truckers, local transfer and cartage companies, and construction contractors who operate their own heavy vehicles. If you’ve been cited for any violation relating to the improper operation of a truck of any kind, you already realize that your business, your livelihood, and your right to drive a commercial vehicle can be in serious jeopardy.

For skilled representation on minor and major trucking violations, contact New York trucking company violations lawyer Barry Jacobson’s offices in Brooklyn or in Jericho. We represent trucking companies and individual drivers facing serious charges such as:

  • Overweight or oversized load violations, including the multiple axle or consecutive axle overweight violations that can cost you $50,000 to $100,000
  • Permit violations, including hazardous materials citations, Highway Use Tax Permits, Special Hauling Permits, Bridge Authority or Thruway Permits, and violations involving escorts, flags, or speed restrictions
  • Log book errors concerning driver’s hours, vehicle inspections, or maintenance records
  • Speeding, reckless driving, erratic lane changes, or other moving violations

Our experience with commercial driver’s license protection is just what you need to avoid or mitigate the worst consequences of trucking violations anywhere in New York State. If you’re an independent owner-operator, you know that your CDL is at stake. If you operate a fleet of trucks, you understand that time and money depend on keeping your drivers on the road and out of trouble, not in court on trucking violation summonses, or worse yet, under suspension.

If you work primarily in the construction trades, but drive your own truck for excavation, cement and foundations, demolition and hauling, or any other load that puts you under the coverage of the FMCSR, you’re especially vulnerable to driving errors and unwitting trucking violations.

New York permit violations lawyer Barry Jacobson is a former New York State Traffic Violations Judge who has defended private and commercial drivers on serious traffic charges since 1992. With experience prosecuting, defending, and adjudicating serious trucking violations over the last 25 years, he’s a perfect choice to help resolve your trucking violation problem on the most favorable terms possible under the facts and the law.

When your bread and butter depend on a clean driving record, you need an attorney with an advanced understanding of the NYSDOT regulations and the FMSCR. Contact Barry Jacobson in Brooklyn to see how he can help protect your license to operate a commercial vehicle.
