A CDL Violation can Put Your Employment at Risk
Even if the courts decide not to revoke or suspend your CDL license, your employer can terminate your employment if they deem you a serious risk. Employers assume the responsibility for employees who cause accidents while on the job. Problem-employees create liability issues and cause their insurance costs to rise. For this reason, it is imperative that you fight to clear your driving record.
Types of CDL Violations
If you are an in-state or out-of-state trucker who has been ticketed in Indiana, you are probably concerned about how this will affect your commercial driver’s license. Your CDL is the lifeblood of your occupation. Without it, you can no longer perform your job.
Your CDL can be revoked or suspended for a number of reasons. These include:
- Reckless driving,
- Excessive speeding,
- Missing registration,
- Mobile phone use,
- Logbook violations,
- Driving with a BAC of .04 or higher,
- Refusing a blood test for alcohol,
- Unsafe or illegal lane change, and
- Leaving the scene of an accident.
Your CDL can also be revoked or suspended if you have accumulated more than 18 points on your license over the course of a two-year period or have two or more serious infractions over the course of the past three years. There are some infractions for which a second citation can result in the permanent revocation of your license.
A CDL Tickets Lawyer can Help Clear Your Record
Relatively routine infractions for regular drivers are considered much more serious when CDL drivers commit them. While some might feel that their best plan of action is to simply pay the ticket and move on, that is not always in your best interest. Fighting the violation in court can clear your record, remove points that would otherwise be on your license, and not impact your employer’s insurance obligations.
