In order for you to legally drive a commercial vehicle for a living, you need to obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). Certain offenses, including traffic violations, can result in the suspension of your CDL, which may result in the loss of your job. As such, you need to resolve any allegation of a traffic ticket in a way that it does not result in the suspension of your CDL. To ensure that you get the best result possible, it in your best interest to hire an experienced New Jersey CDL ticket attorney.
Defending Your New Jersey Commercial Driver’s License
Under New Jersey law, a conviction for any type of violation that is considered a “serious offense” can impact your CDL. Some of these offenses include:
- Speeding more than 15 miles per hour over the posted limit
- Reckless driving
- Improper lane change
- Any violation resulting in a fatal accident
Just because you received a traffic violation, however, does not mean that you are automatically guilty. An experienced attorney can investigate the facts surrounding the alleged violation to determine whether the ticket was properly issued. A good New Jersey CDL attorney will also search for witnesses and any other specific facts to devise the best strategy to dismiss your moving violation ticket.
