Will County Attorney Fighting CDL Tickets

Truck drivers, taxi drivers, chauffeurs, and others who make their livings operating commercial vehicles in Illinois are required to hold a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). While no driver likes receiving a traffic citation, when a CDL driver is ticketed for a moving violation, their livelihood could be at risk. Both the state of Illinois and the U.S. government have established specific laws regarding what offenses can result in a driver's CDL being suspended or revoked. Commercial drivers who have been cited for a traffic offense shouldn't hesitate to contact a Will County traffic ticket defense lawyer who has specific experience handling CDL issues.

Losing your CDL in Illinois

Commercial drivers can be disqualified from holding their CDL for two months if they receive two "serious traffic tickets" within a three-year period. Serious traffic violations include a speeding ticket obtained while driving more than 15 mph over the speed limit or a reckless driving charge. Commercial drivers can also lose their CDL for one year if convicted of DUI. A second DUI charge can cause a driver to lose their CDL for life. There are also federal and state trucking regulations, including those regarding overweight violations, which set forth other circumstances that warrant a CDL suspension or revocation.
