How a Washington State Over Weight Traffic Ticket Affects Your CDL License

A Washington over weight traffic ticket can have serious consequences. The type of Washington ticket can result in substantial fines, increased insurance premiums, and could even affect your CDL license and your job.
This WA traffic ticket applies to CDL drivers. All commercial drivers should be aware of the weight limits on their vehicle. This will depend on the number of axles the truck has, the distances between the axles, and also the types of tires used.
Some jurisdictions will issue a Washington over weight traffic ticket to the company that owns


the truck, but the majority will cite the driver. Unfortunately, this means the driver can get cited for a ticket well over $1,000! The consequences involved with this kind of ticket makes it vital that you consider retaining a Washington traffic ticket attorney with the experience needed to defend your driving record.
As a commercial driver, it is important to know the law and try to protect yourself. Be aware of how your truck is loaded. Additionally, it would be in your best interest to take pictures of how the Officer is weighing your truck. Often what happens out on the road (e.g. weighing on a slope) does not match what was written in the Officer’s report.
Inconsistencies in the citing Officer’s report can lead to an outright dismissal of your infraction, and save you a lot of money and a great deal of hassle. Even the most conscientious commercial driver can make a simple mistake, and there is no reason an oversight should cause you such dire ramifications.
