Commercial drivers spend thousands of hours on the road delivering crops, goods, and the like. For that reason, a commercial driver is held to a higher standard of care whether you are operating a commercial vehicle or not. Not to mention the federal regulations that you must be aware of and comply with. You might not be able to appear in court -a lawyer can usually do this for you!
1. Your motor vehicle record is ability to earn a living -we must protect it!
2. Your employer may have stiff policies regarding traffic ticket -we don’t want you to get fired!
3. Your CSA scores are impacted by traffic ticket -we protect your safety record!
4. Your insurance could drop you -that means you can’t drive!
Depending on what the violation you are accused of committing is, it may result in a mandatory suspension of your license or put you in a position where another ticket for the same offense will result in a suspension.That is exactly why you have to fight every ticket!
