    Doing a local delivery, I got a ticket .2 miles from the main trucking road, the company I was delivering was .5 from the main Trucking road.
    The officer gave me a generic ticket that cites " missed post sign " . Any body knows the rules about local deliveries for truckers?

    Really depends. There is no universal laws about local deliveries. That makes us fall back to the specific local.
    Most likely there is a truck route that would have got you there. The local cops know their roads.

    That said, if you know you were on the only route available simply call the court and explain yourself. If that fails, call a local lawyer.

    If that was the only road to get to the receiver, then you should be able to beat it.
