Are you facing a traffic ticket which may put your commercial driver's license in jeopardy? Do you need legal assistance in defending yourself against a traffic offense in the New York City area which will put unwanted points on your commercial driving record? If so, we recommend that you consult with a knowledgeable attorney at our firm as soon as possible. Our firm has extensive experience in defending drivers of all kinds against all types of traffic citations.
In the case of a driver with a commercial driver's license, when your license is endangered, you will be unable to work and earn a living. If you have accumulated too many points on your driving record, your license can be suspended by the DMV, essentially putting you out of a job. Before that happens, we advise you to contact our firm to set up a free, initial consultation with a defense attorney to discuss the matter of your traffic offense and how it will affect your commercial driver's license. After a review of your situation, we can advise you on what to expect and how we can help.
You need a commercial driver's license to drive a commercial motor vehicle in New York. Commercial vehicles are those with a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more, a vehicle designed to carry 16 or more people, such as a bus, or a vehicle which requires hazardous materials placards. If you drive such a vehicle without a commercial license, you may go to jail or be fined up to $5,000.
Because your license is your livelihood, it is important that you do not accrue too many points on your record from traffic tickets. In any traffic offense you are cited for, you have the legal right to appear in court and defend yourself. With the skilled and experienced assistance of a traffic ticket defense lawyer from our firm, you stand a much better chance of avoiding an automatic conviction which will result in fines or points that could endanger your license and your ability to drive.
