Chicago Attorneys for Commercial Driver's License Violations

Rolling Meadows CDL Violation Attorney

CDL Violation Lawyers Serving Bucktown, Wicker Park, and All Cook County Areas

When you drive a commercial vehicle for a living, your livelihood and the best interests of your family depend on your continued employment. Serious traffic violations, however, can lead to the suspension or revocation of your commercial drivers license (CDL), making it impossible for you to continue working. At Luisi Legal Group, we understand the importance of keeping you on the road. We will work hard to protect your commercial driving privileges no matter how difficult your situation may seem.

Legal Counsel for CDL Holders Facing Serious Violations

Traffic tickets of any kind are serious for any driver. For those who hold CDLs, a momentary lapse in judgment could have potentially life-altering consequences. Violations which may seem relatively harmless, albeit expensive, to a non-commercial driver could result in the temporary suspension or lifetime revocation of your CDL. Your commercial drivers license will be suspended for one year if you are convicted for:

A second conviction on any of the above will result in a lifetime disqualification of your CDL privileges.

We have handled cases like yours, and we win cases like yours.

Chicago CDL Violations Lawyers

Cumulative traffic offenses can also affect your status as a CDL holder, especially those that have been designated by the State of Illinois as serious traffic violations. There are dozens of such violations under Illinois law, including:

  • Speeding more than 15 mph above the posted speed limit;
  • Speeding in a construction zone or school zone;
  • Reckless driving;
  • Disregarding lane control signals or improper lane usage;
  • Improper passing; and
  • Passenger, cargo, or license classification violations.

A conviction on two serious traffic violations while operating a commercial vehicle within three years will result in a suspension of your CDL. The same offenses committed in a non-commercial vehicle may also result in a suspension but only if your regular driving privileges are also suspended by the conviction.

If you are a commercial driver's license holder, and you have received a citation for any traffic violation, it is important to speak to a lawyer right away.
