Is your CDL threatened by charges of drunk driving?
If you have a commercial driver's license (CDL), it's likely that your income depends on your ability to drive your commercial vehicle. Truck drivers, bus drivers, and others depend on their CDL for income. If you are charged with driving under the influence (DUI) as a commercial driver, you could lose your license. The
penalties for drunk driving include license revocation for six months to five years, or permanently. You cannot allow this to happen to you if you drive a commercial vehicle for a living.
Defense Strategies for CDL DUI Cases
Commercial drivers can be charged with DUI if they blow a 0.04% blood alcohol content (BAC) or higher. For other motorists who are 21 or older, their BAC must be 0.08% in order for a legal arrest to be made.
