CDL (Commercial Driver’s Licence) violations can threaten your job. Even if the courts do not suspend or revoke your license, your employer can deem you a liability risk. This information can be subpoenaed during a personal injury trial. If you need to fight a CDL ticket, The Bellinger Law Office can help. Do not let one mistake put your license in peril, give us a call and allow us to help.
Since commercial vehicles are usually incredibly large, especially in relation to standard passenger vehicles, many regulations apply specifically to them. Poorly maintained vehicles, poorly loaded vehicles, and poorly trained drivers present a serious risk to other commuters on the road. However, if you drive a vehicle long enough, you will eventually catch a police officer’s eye for something. Yet the penalties for CDL drivers tend to be more severe. If the ticket results in a license suspension, you are out of work.
CDLs can be revoked or suspended for any of the following reasons:
CDL suspensions work on a similar point system to other types of driver’s license suspensions. If you have accumulated 18 points or more on your license over a two-year period, the state can suspend or revoke your license. If you have two or more serious infractions on your record over the past three years, you can also see your license revoked or suspended. There are also infractions for which a second citation will result in the permanent revocation of your license.
Routine infractions are considered much more severe when they involve large commercial trucks. It will seldom be in your best interest to simply pay the fine and consider the matter settled. Those who successfully fight a violation will have points removed from their license, clear their record, and not have to worry about whether their next infraction will be their last. It also does not impact your employer’s insurance obligations.
If you are facing points on your license that you cannot have or a possible suspension, the attorneys at The Bellinger Law Office can represent you during the proceedings. Talk to us early in the process for the best results. We can help you toward a clean record.
