Qualcomm NEW
by: NickV

If you notified dispatch via Qualcomm and then they told you to roll anyway then you could quite possibly be in the clear. All of those conversations are documented. Yes the prior response is dead on. If the company wants to they can sit back and say even though we said to you got yourself that ticket. It's one of the downfalls to driving. They say they are gonna take care of you until it's really time to and then you turn around and they aren't there. Good luck with your battle and I hope it works out for you. Just wanted to throw that out there if you have documented evidence then you could quit possibly get out of paying the fine. Unfortunately the offense will follow you on your record and that's just another "perk"

From a legal standpoint, it would be entirely your responsibility.

If there was a defect with the truck that you knew would result in a ticket, you should have notified the company immediately and refused to drive the truck until the issue was resolved.

Weather or not your company decides to pay the ticket for you would depend on the companies policies.
