To Whom It May Concern:
My name is …………………. and this letter is in relation to Citation number ……………….
I received theabove mentioned citation on grounds of lack of registration and additionally charged with weight violation.
Referring to the first concept, I would like to inform you that I was notaware of the registration expiration, basically because I was doing a lease-to-buy transaction with the person who later sold me the truck. Therefore, I did not realize that said documentwas expired until the same moment the officer named it on the citation. I did try to straighten up the situation as soon as possible; however the ex-owner was not in town and unreachableover the phone.
The second concept was imposed based on overweight; nevertheless the charge was not for the weight excess but for the whole load, bringing the payable amountextremely high.
Being a new driver is not easy, and the returns on income are not as I expected, considering the entire extra expenses in order to keep working such as repairs and gettinga new registration under my name which also implied an important disbursement of money.
Although I did pay out the citation assessment fee, it is particularly difficult for me topay this amount, based on my economic needs at this point.
For that reason I would like to request a reduction on the citation fee.
I will really appreciate your understanding tomy request.
