Why Commercial Drivers Should Hire an Attorney

Of all drivers, commercial drivers have the most at stake following a DUI arrest or a traffic citation. Not only are the commercial driving laws stricter than the traffic laws pertaining regular drivers, but the consequences of a DUI or traffic offense are much greater for a commercial driver. For example, a regular driver will be arrested for OWI or DUI if his or her BAC is .08 percent or higher. Commercial drivers can be charged with DUI or OWI with a BAC level as low as .04 percent.

If you are a commercial driver and you have been arrested on DUI/OWI charges or ticketed for a traffic violation, it is imperative that you seek experienced defense representation right away. If you lose your driver's license not only will you no longer be able to drive, but you will also no longer be able to work. Naturally, this will have a direct effect on your ability to support yourself and your loved ones.
