A lot of  trucking clients have received tickets for not having a Commercial Motor Vehicle Tax Stamp  (MVT sticker).  But most of the out-of-state companies do not require one since they do not conduct more than half of their business within New York City.  To understand more about the New York City Commercial Motor Vehicle Tax click here

IMPORTANT:  Since 2001,  the FMCSA mandates that states suspend the CDL of any driver for various driving infractions including, but not limited to failure to obey a railroad signal (60 days) and leaving the scene of an accident (one year).  There are no hardship provisions available during the suspension.  Surprisingly,  many attorneys that I have spoken with are unaware of this Federal law. In fact, there are a multitude of offenses that can result in suspension of a CDL.  Click here for a table of offenses that result in a suspension

As for the overlength in New York, 53 foot trailers must only use "qualifying highways".  But even if a 48 foot trailer is used, in most instances the overall length of the rig must be less than 65 '.  For more information, go to the official New York State DOT page which describes the rules in detail. Or click here for the oficial New York City Truck Route Map.  It also has has a number to call for a permit.  If one of your drivers has already received an overlength or overwidth ticket, call me.
