Tickets for Overweight Trucks
Cited for a Traffic Infraction? Contact Tomeo Sills, LLC Now
Driving an overweight truck is not only detrimental to Connecticut roads
and infrastructure, but can also increase the risk and consequences of
an accident and put other drivers in danger. For this reason, Connecticut
has enacted truck weight laws that, if violated, could result in expensive
fines depending on the percentage that the truck is overweight.
If you have been accused of driving an overweight truck, it is a good idea
to consult an experienced Connecticut traffic ticket defense attorney
at Tomeo Sills, LLC. Our criminal defense lawyers have more than four
decades of experience protecting the rights, freedom, livelihoods, and
futures of commercial drivers in Connecticut and are available to review
your case for free.

Other Crimes Related to Operating an Overweight Truck

endangerment or manslaughter in connection with a truck accident in which

can cost you thousands of dollars and potentially land you in prison.

case and discuss your defense options.
