Commercial Driver Retains His License for Careless DrivingAug 14 2017 in Case Results, Criminal Traffic Offenses, Traffic Offenses
In Beaver Falls, a commercial driver from Louisiana was making a delivery in his 18-wheeler and mistakenly went down a road that does not allow trucks. This resulted in an accident where he pulled down some power lines and criminal charges for careless driving and allegedly trying to leave the scene. These are each three point offenses for a possible total of six points on his license, and after being informed by his employer that even one point would cost him his job, he contacted one of our Pennsylvania traffic attorneys.
Attorney Matthew Ness saw the difficult position his client was in and handled the matter on his behalf. Because his client was from out-of-state, attorney Ness appeared in court and negotiated with the prosecutor to have both traffic violations reduced to a single no-point ticket for failing to obey a traffic control device. Without the need to appear and without any points appearing on his license, this man’s record and job were preserved.
