Our country depends greatly on motorists who hold a CDL license. These drivers transport our food from one end of the country to the other, deliver our packages and even administer emergency medical services. However, with a CDL license comes great responsibility. Those who hold a CDL or commercial driver’s license face harsher punishments when ticketed or cited for any traffic violation, moving or otherwise.
If you hold a CDL and have been convicted of two serious traffic violations within a period of three years, you run the risk of losing your CDL license for sixty days. If you are convicted of three serious traffic violations within a period of three years, you could lose your license for up to 120 days.
If you work a job that requires you to have a CDL, losing your driving privileges could cost you your job, not to mention costing you your clean driving record. Losing your CDL is not something you can afford to gamble with. In cases like these, it is more important than ever to consult with a seasoned New York traffic lawyer who can help you get the ticket dismissed.

Note: Recent changes to the New York State Vehicle & Traffic Law makes it mandatory for motorists who are found guilty of certain traffic violations to pay an assessment to the Department of Motor Vehicles. This is called the Driver Responsibility Program and it applies to drivers who operate any kind of motor vehicle in New York State. This applies to New York drivers, regardless of the state the driver is actually licensed in.
