Cited for a Traffic Infraction? Contact The Sills Law Firm 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.

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.
