Truck Driver Logbook Violations: A Complex Set Of Rules

Many truck drivers are cited for logbook violations simply because they were in a hurry and made a mistake. Those violations – such as not carrying a logbook, creating a false logbook entry, hours violations and carrying a logbook that is not current – can carry high consequences. Logbook violations are misdemeanors; they are a criminal offense rather than a civil offense. The consequences you face can include:

  • More than $1,000 in fines
  • Points on your driving record
  • Higher insurance premiums
  • Jail time
  • The stigma of a criminal record
  • Suspension or revocation of your CDL
  • Employment loss

Trucking companies hold drivers accountable for logbook violations when the drivers committed the violation to meet the delivery schedule. To protect your future, contact a CDL defense lawyer as soon as possible. We will handle all aspects of your logbook violation case by phone and email, so you will not have to return to the area to fight the ticket.
