CDL Ticket Attorneys in New York
Commercial truck drivers are subject to serious penalties for traffic violations in New York. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to protect your Commercial Driver’s License.
Moving Violations and Your CDL
Moving violations can result in your license being suspended or revoked. Under New York Law, your CDL can be suspended for the following reasons:
- Not paying traffic tickets
- Failure to stop at a stop sign or running a red light
- Causing a fatal accident
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- BAC of .04 percent or higher
- Refusing a breath test
- Reckless driving
- Unsafe or illegal lane changes
- Violating New York or federal transportation laws such as logbook violations
Commercial truck drivers are held to a higher standard than regular motorists, and the penalties for traffic violations are severe. Driving without a valid CDL is illegal. You can face a $5,000 fine or go to jail. Don’t take that risk. Our law firm can protect you and will work hard to get your ticket dismissed or reduced.
Your CDL can be suspended for at least one year for driving with a BAC of .04 percent or higher, driving any type of vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance, refusing a Breathalyzer test or leaving the scene of an accident. Your CDL will be suspended for at least three years if you were transporting hazardous materials during any of these violations.
