NEW YORK OUT OF SERVICE & TRANSPORTATION LAW VIOLATIONS
Commercial drivers face a vast array of local, state and federal rules and regulations. Violations of these rules can be very costly. For drivers and their employers dealing with violations, especially traffic tickets, means lost time from work, court fines and surcharges, Department of Transportation penalties, stress and aggravation.
In New York State, if a commercial vehicle is stopped and found to have an out of service violation, the vehicle will be taken off the road and a penalty of $1,000 to $5,000 could be assessed. Any driver found guilty of an out of service traffic ticket can be fined a minimum of $2,500 up to a maximum of $4,000 for a first offense. An employer or owner of a commercial vehicle with out of service violations could face fines and penalties of up to $10,000.
An easily repairable violation on a commercial vehicle could cost both the driver and his or her employer thousands of dollars, not to mention the hours off the road, delayed schedules and the headache of dealing with the legal system.
