Our CDL Violation Defense Attorneys Take Every Measure to Preserve Your CDL Driving Privileges
While the suspension of driving privileges is serious for any driver, the consequences for those with commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) are far more serious. Because CDL drivers can operate large, heavy commercial trucks and transport public passengers, they are held to a higher standard than other drivers are. Speeding tickets, traffic violations and DWI charges received off the job influence not only their driving record, but also their profession. Knowledgeable CDL violation defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark J. Sacco in New York take every measure to preserve your CDL driving privileges.
Heightened Penalties for Commercial Driver’s Licenses
If you’re pulled over and cited for going 76 in a 55 mph zone, you face a six-point violation in New York, which carries the possibility of a mandatory $300 driver responsibility assessment in addition to a large fine for exceeding the speed limit by more than 20 miles, a surcharge and possible federal consequences.
Under federal law, if you’re convicted of two “serious traffic violations” within three years, you can lose your CDL for 60 days. “Serious traffic violations” include, but are not limited to, excessive speeding of 15 mph or greater, driving recklessly under state law, tailgating, making illegal lane changes and driving without having your CDL in your possession.
