A traffic ticket issued to Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders can result in the suspension of your California Commercial Driver’s License. If you drive for a living, losing your CDL can mean losing your job and source of income. Even after you get your suspended Commercial Driver’s License back, there is a high likelihood that you may not be rehired by your employer or any other employer.
If you hold a CDL, the points of each traffic violation is 1.5 times more than the points of the same violation for non-commercial drivers. Also, commercial drivers cannot attend traffic school to eliminate these points. Therefore, depending on your record, one or two tickets can result in your Commercial Driver’s License being suspended.
Speeding in excess of 15 miles per-hour over the posted speed limit (in your Commercial Vehicle) is often cited as a Criminal Misdemeanor case with a possible 90-day loss of license and two points on your driving record. If you get one of these citations, it is important that you consult a Traffic Ticket Attorney to know your options.
Our attorneys can help you to fight traffic violations and possibly get them dismissed or get the fine and/or points associated with the ticket reduced. Call or contact us today for your free consultation.
