If you’ve been driving for any length of time, you’re aware of the higher standards the law puts on commercial drivers. Commercial drivers often pay higher fees, get more points on their driving records and face stiffer penalties than if they committed the same offense in their personal vehicles.
That’s why, if you do get a speeding ticket with your CDL, it’s usually more difficult to get it dismissed. But because your driving record is so important to your career and your future as a driver, just paying the ticket without requesting a hearing is never a good idea. An attorney who specializes in CDL defense can represent you in court and help you fight to keep your good driving record. In some instances, tickets get dismissed simply because there is not enough evidence or the officer who issued the ticket does not show up for the hearing. It’s worth your time and effort to have the right representation and show up to present your case in court.
