If you are a truck driver, then your CDL is your livelihood. Without it, you have no job, no way to support your family. Even in cases in which your CDL has not been suspended or revoked, a moving violation on your record can make it more difficult for you to find future work as that represents a liability hazard to your employer. It is, therefore, imperative to have an Allen County CDL defense lawyer handle any tickets you receive. Below, we will discuss this in more detail.
For obvious reasons, the federal government heavily regulates the trucking industry. Truckers are responsible for performing inspections on their vehicles while they are on delivery, ensuring that the vehicle is roadworthy, ensuring that they themselves are roadworthy, loading the cargo properly, and taking adequate rest breaks. Failure to do any of these things can result in a ticket. This is on top of the enhanced penalties for typical traffic violations that all commuters face.
If you are a truck driver, not only is your CDL more important to you than the average driver’s license, but it is easier to lose, as well.
Even if a CDL violation does not result in license suspension, a driver has a lot to lose by pleading guilty. The infraction remains on their driving record potentially causing their own (or their employer’s insurance to go up). Further, if a driver with a CDL infraction on their license causes an accident, this creates a liability problem for their employer who could be sued for direct negligence for hiring a driver with a spotty record. Many employers do not want to take that risk.
At The Bellinger Law Office, we have represented several Indiana commercial truck drivers in defense of traffic violations and other tickets that could damage their marketability in the workforce.
You can also be ticketed for driving with the improper type of CDL or a weight-limit restriction.
Do not simply plead guilty because you received a ticket. That is tantamount to an admission of guilt. That will stay on your record and could cost you job opportunities down the road. Call the CDL defense attorneys at The Bellinger Law Office today to learn more about how we can help.
