Commercial Driver's License Traffic Ticket

negligent drivingAll CDL holders need to know they face harsh consequences if they have tickets on their record – even if the tickets were obtained while driving their personal vehicle. If you receive 2 or more “serious” traffic offenses from separate incidents within a 3 year period, your CDL will be suspended for 60 days. If you get a third, you will be suspended for 120 days!

Obviously, this can result in a lost job. It is important to fight every single ticket you get. Even if you haven’t had one previously for years, you cannot guarantee you won’t get another one in the near future. Plus, some types of tickets and some courts are more difficult than others. It would be extremely frustrating to not fight the first ticket that was very easy but then try to fight the second ticket that ended up being very difficult.

The State’s definition of “serious” traffic offenses includes, but is not limited to:

  • Speeding 15mph+ over the limit
  • Following too closely
  • Failing to stop (stop sign & red light tickets)
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Improper lane change and travel (i.e. not signaling or cutting someone off)
  • Improper passing

These are just a few of the types of violations that will impact your CDL. As you can see, some of these are very easy to get. Call now to speak with one of our experienced commercial driver's license lawyers if you get your first ticket. We will fight to keep your record clear.

Client Reviews
I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.
Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.
Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!
Jason Newcombe and his Associate's are all top notch individuals who will fight tooth and nail for you and go the distance to ensure that you receive the best outcome possible on your case. I would not be where I am today if not for the Law offices of Jason Newcombe.
