Commercial drivers should avoid getting ticketed for one of the following serious traffic offenses:

  • Following too closely.
  • Speeding
  • Improper lane changes.
  • Operating a commercial vehicle without your CDL in your possession.
  • Careless driving.
  • Driving a rig without the proper endorsement.

If convicted of any of above described violations, you could face the following commercial driver penalties:

  • The suspension or revocation of your commercial drivers license, the length of which is contingent on your state, the nature of the violation, and your driving record. Once cleared to resume driving, you’ll then face expensive license reinstatement fees.
  • Points assessed to your drivers license, if applicable to your state. Top a specified amount of points as designated by your state and you could lose all driving privileges.
  • The temporary or permanent loss of your job.
  • Higher insurance rates.
  • Very stiff fines.
  • In some serious cases, jail time is possible, depending, of course, on the nature of the violation.

If convicted of any of the above violations, you are required, by law, to notify your employer. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your ticket and what’s at stake, you may want to consider hiring a traffic attorney who specializes in CDL affairs.

Keep in mind that HAZMAT drivers are under tighter scrutiny; penalties are magnified even more.

With so much at stake, it is important that you have an experienced attorney to assist you and help you try to avoid the worst consequences. If this applies to you, call Steven Ginsberg today.
