California May Lift Traffic School Ban For Truckers

Posted on: August 13th, 2012 by Traffic School

Currently in the state of California, truckers can not take traffic school for minor infractions including speeding, failure to yield, or illegal turns when they take place in their own vehicles or in the commercial vehicles they drive. That means that currently CA truckers must pay the penalties of a ticket, without having points removed with traffic school, even when they are pulled over and ticketed in their own car.

However, this is all about to change because the Senate Transportation Committee recently voted to change this law and allow truckers to take traffic school for personal infractions. This is extremely advantageous for truck drivers who often paid much higher insurance premiums and could experience trouble at work for a personal violation.
