Commonwealth v. Ishankulov

The Pennsylvania Superior Court affirmed the defendant’s $10,000+ fine for violating the Restrictions of Use of Highways and Bridges statute. A police officer pulled over the defendant and directed him to a weigh station. After determining that the defendant’s tractor-trailer was twice the legal limit for a bridge he crossed, the officer issued a ticket. The magisterial district judge convicted the defendant, who appealed. The trial court convicted the defendant and imposed a fine of more than $10k. The defendant again appealed, and the Superior Court affirmed. The Court held that the Commonwealth presented sufficient evidence to convict the defendant of a violation of 75 Pa.C.S. ยง 4902(a), the trial court correctly imposed a fine under Section 4902(g)(1), and the penalty was not excessive or unconstitutional.
