Traffic Violations That Could Have Your CDL Suspended
For those who drive for a living, having and keeping your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is necessary to paying bills and providing for your family. Whether you drive a delivery route, transport cargo over long stretches of road, or provide much needed transportation services to the community, you need your CDL for your continued employment. Judges and police officers hold those with a commercial driver’s license to a higher standard, and they expect that you follow every traffic law to the letter.
Every traffic stop has the potential to not only land you a misdemeanor conviction, but also to lose your CDL. Not only do you need to worry about your actions while in your personal vehicle, but you need to take special care when operating a vehicle for your employer as well. Take a look at the following common traffic violations that could cause you to have your commercial driver’s license suspended.
