Protecting Your CDL Is Vital To Your Livelihood

Perhaps few people on the road have as much to lose from a traffic violation as a driver of a commercial vehicle. Indeed, driving regulations are much more stringent for those who carry a commercial driver’s license, and the loss of your license means the loss of your livelihood.

There is too much at stake to handle a traffic violation without strong legal representation. At Ticket Trashers, we can help. We have years of experience protecting the rights and interests of CDL drivers, and know what it takes to keep their jobs safe.

You Are Held To A Higher Standard

The stakes are high for CDL drivers. Even first-time offenders will face a year-long license suspension for infractions, including:

  • Hit-and-run
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Driving your personal vehicle while intoxicated
  • Refusing consent for a blood alcohol test
  • Offenses related to controlled substances

If you are convicted of any of these offenses while hauling hazardous materials, you risk a three-year license suspension. Additionally, if your BAC is .04 or higher while you are operating a commercial vehicle, the court may suspend your CDL permanently.

Far-Reaching Consequences

For commercial drivers, the law requires you to report any conviction for a traffic violation to your employer within 30 days. However, if your CDL is revoked, you have one day after receiving your suspension to notify your employer.

Just that quickly, you could lose your job. The ripple effect of a job loss could touch every corner of your life, placing in jeopardy your home, your relationships and your future employment opportunities.
