NJ Commercial Drivers’ License Violation

Plainsboro Commercial Drivers’ License Violation Attorney

Your car isn’t just a way to get from one place to another-it is actually where your paycheck comes from. If you are dealing with a Plainsboro commercial drivers’ license violation, we understand the stress and frustration you are experiencing right now. Concerns about the legal uncertainty of your case are totally normal so take a deep breath and keep reading. The unfortunate reality is, you do not need to be working to have what you do on the road impact the status of your commercial drivers’ license. Take a look at some of the examples below to see the major impact any type of violation can have on your commercial drivers’ license in Plainsboro, New Jersey:

  • 1st time DUI in a passenger vehicle: 3-12 month basic drivers’ license suspension and a 1 year commercial drivers’ license suspension
  • Driving a commercial vehicle with a suspended CDL: A first time conviction for this somewhat common offense carries a 1 year CDL suspension
  • Failure to slow down or stop (when relevant) at a railroad crossing: This offense carries a minimum 60 day CDL suspension for a first offense and no less than 1 year for a third or subsequent offense.
  • Texting while driving: Getting caught texting while driving carries up to 60 day CDL license suspension for the second offense

As you can see, the penalties attached to mistakes made by commercial drivers for any traffic mistake can have a devastating impact on your ability to make money. Even a seemingly minor offense can put you out of work for up to two months!

Just because you have been issued a ticket that can potentially impact your New Jersey commercial drivers’ license does not necessarily mean you will be convicted. Like a regular traffic ticket, there are almost always viable defenses to be made to the traffic charge against you.
