What Is Considered a Serious Traffic Violation?

Traffic tickets deemed minor to the average driver can have serious consequences for CDL operators. The most common violation is exceeding the posted speed limit by 15 miles per hour. Other examples of federal and state-defined serious traffic violations include following too closely, improper or erratic lane changes and reckless driving.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a CDL operator will have his or her license suspended for two serious traffic violations in any three-year period, with a minimum suspension of two months.

Driving While Intoxicated

If you are arrested for driving under the influence while in your personal vehicle, you can still lose your commercial driver's license. Any additional DUI convictions can lead to permanent suspension of your CDL. Do not plead guilty or pay a fine without talking with us first.

Many clients do not know they can challenge a suspension of their driving privileges following a DUI/DWI arrest. Our staff will scrutinize field testing procedures, question the validity of the officer's initial traffic stop to find a weakness in the prosecutor's case against you. At The Madison County Traffic Law Attorneys firm, we understand that simply being arrested for drunk driving or another traffic violation does not indicate guilt; and that your life and livelihood depend on you keeping your commercial driver's license.
