Commercial Driver License: Citations, Issues, Effects
Are you a CDL holder cited for a traffic offense while driving a commercial vehicle? Are you a CDL holder cited for a traffic violation in a personal vehicle? If you are either, you know by now that traffic offenses have more severe consequences to a CDL than a typical driver license. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has deemed some civil traffic offenses, speeding among them, grounds for suspension of your CDL. Even worse, the FLDHSMV now requires Judges and Hearing Officers to adjudicate guilty (assess points and costs) CDL holders cited for traffic violations.
However, there are viable defenses to many of the traffic violations. Additionally, there are ways to avoid the adjudication short of trial.
