    overweight tickets

    do overweight tickets affect your license in any way?do overweight tickets affect your ability to seek future employment?I work for a egg farm hauling corn and chicken feed in a hopper bottom trailer.i have received two tickets in the last three weeks for this.The company i work for pays for the tickets without even the slightest bit of hesitation.The owners approach to it is he has more money that Texas DPS can write tickets out for.Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

    I've had 2 over weight citations. didn't show up on my DAC/hire right or whatever they're calling themselves these days. my MVR has been checked and no company I've applied to ever said anything about these tickets. not sure where, if any where they would be recorded.

    thank you very much.i was hoping that was the case.i really prefer to run legal but the company doesnt seem to care.it is just a pain because Texas DPS knows we run that route six days a week so they are always stopping us because it is a easy ticket for them.A driver does tend to get tired of getting DOT inspections every other week

    Depends...

    It may show up in the new federal database that the DOT is planning to put into effect in December. All depends on whether state-issued non-moving violations get into the input stream for that.

    More than likely, it will appear in the detail version of your MVR... not the short-form that you get for a few bucks from your state license bureau.

    And then it depends on how picky you future employers are. Right now they can be mighty picky because of the glut of unemployed drivers. If and when the volume of freight in the US picks up, that may all change once again.

    You had better look into the new csa 2010 policies. Driver qualification will be affected by DOT inspection citations. Check out csa2010.com

    My understanding is that it will only be listing OOS violations - the same violations that DOT look for when doing an audit. A driver will be scored on that just like companies are now.

    Overweights have never been an issue because they are not considered moving violations. They are an easy revenue stream for many states and in most cases are written directly to the company and not the driver.

    I did a quick review of the web sight today. The OOS standard is applied to withdraw company authority, the inspection citations are counted and record kept for 3 years to rate the driver and the rating is to be adjusted monthly. Once determined unfit you are looking for a new occupation. I may be reading it wrong so check it out yourself
