Earlier this month Weiland Upton represented a client who received a ticket in Henrico County Virginia for Failing to Yield the Right of Way.
Our client’s ticket was a result of him backing his tractor trailer across major and heavy traveled road from one parking lot to another parking lot on the other side of the road. The illegal maneuver caused an approaching vehicle to hit his tractor trailer as a it entered the road, which in turn caused a backup on the road. This client’s case was made more complicated by the fact that he holds a Commercial Driver’s License rather than a normal non-commercial license.
The impact that traffic violations classified as “moving violations” has on a holder of a commercial driver’s license is much more profound than that on a typical licensee. As a result, the client’s ticket was reduced from a “moving violation” to a “non-moving violation,” which made a significant positive impact on the client’s driving record as a CDL holder.
If you or someone you know finds themselves charged with a traffic violation in Virginia, please feel free to contact the attorneys at Weiland Upton, (804) 355-8037.
