Protecting Professional Drivers

A traffic violation can be a headache for anyone. But if your livelihood depends on your ability to drive a commercial vehicle, a traffic violation can turn into a nightmare. If you drive a truck, a bus or other commercial vehicle, I can help you avoid the harshest consequences of a violation. My goal as a commercial driver's license (CDL) violations attorney is to help you preserve your freedom and your ability to keep working.

The blood alcohol limit for commercial drivers is .04, half of what it is for drivers of noncommercial vehicles.

There's A Lot At Stake

Commercial drivers face many of the same violations as others on the road, including speeding, passing violations, distracted driving and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. But the consequences are steeper for these drivers than they are for those driving passenger vehicles. In addition, there are other violations specific to commercial vehicles, including:

  • Weight violations
  • Permit violations
  • Truck route violations

Penalties increase for drivers hauling hazardous materials. If you are facing a second charge for a commercial license violation, you could lose your commercial license for life.

If you are facing any of these or other traffic violations that threaten to derail your professional life in North Carolina, The Wagoner Law Firm, PLLC, can help.
