An overweight load ticket may cause temporary suspension and even lead to permanent suspension of a commercial driver’s license. Every state has a maximum load limit that commercial trucks can carry at a certain period of time. As a commercial driver, it is your responsibility to be aware of your approximate weight during each route. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is serious in enforcing maximum load limits and has no mercy in issuing commercial overweight tickets if they in fact do find anything exceeding their guidelines. Don’t let your overweight violation ruin your driving record and jeopardize your employment. There are various ways of fighting your violation and saving you from all the subsequent consequences.
