Fighting CDL Traffic Violations

A traffic violation can be a serious matter for any driver. For a commercial driver, however, getting pulled over can pose a threat to his or her very livelihood. When a driver with a CDL is arrested for a traffic violation, he or she may be subject to:

  • Fines
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Job loss
  • Higher insurance rates
  • Jail time, in extreme circumstances

If you're a commercial driver who has been pulled over for a traffic violation, you need an experienced CDL attorney who can challenge your citation to get your charge reduced or dismissed when possible. At our Tulsa firm, headed by lawyer Terrel DoRemus, we do everything we can to defend your rights and help you keep your CDL and your livelihood after a traffic stop.

Managing Risk And Responsibility

Commercial drivers are held to a higher standard than regular drivers for several reasons:

  • The considerable weight and size of commercial vehicles make them more likely to cause damage in a collision.
  • Commercial vehicles may carry dangerous cargo that could endanger others on the road.
  • Passenger vans and buses place the safety of many people in the hands of one driver.
  • An accident involving a commercial vehicle puts the trucking company at risk for liability.

Some trucking companies will not hire a driver who has any offenses on his or her record, for example:

  • A CDL speeding ticket
  • Driving without a CDL

At the same time, company drivers are required to report any outside (noncommercial) traffic violations to their employers within 30 days. If you're a CDL driver and you've been pulled over for a traffic violation, you don't have to sign your own pink slip. When you become a client at Terrel B. DoRemus & Associates, our firm will do everything we can to mediate your charges, so you can keep your job and protect your future.
