Commercial Drivers

Drivers who have commercial driver's licenses operate large trucks, semis, 18-wheelers, big rigs, and other types of commercial vehicles to make a living. People with commercial driver's licenses tend to spend a lot of time on the road because they depend on driving to earn their living. Because these drivers spend so much time on the road, their chances of receiving a traffic citations significantly increase. Commercial drivers are often up against strict deadlines and to deliver goods to a location at a specific time, which tempt many to commit traffic offenses such as speeding, or into operating with equipment violations or overweight. If you are a commercial driver and have been charged with a traffic violation or an overweight citation, you should speak with a Chicago traffic ticket defense attorney at our firm.

Commercial drivers have much to lose if they receive traffic tickets. Some companies will terminate a driver if they receive a traffic citation because they are seen as being “high risk,” and are a liability to the company. It is important for commercial drivers to have immaculate records otherwise they may have a difficult time getting hired for future work. If a commercial driver receives traffic tickets in a close period of time, or commits serious traffic offenses, they may lose their commercial driver's licenses temporarily, or in some cases permanently. Losing a commercial driver's license can be devastating not only to the individual's sense of self, but to their family as well.

At Fagan Fagan & Davis, our traffic violation attorneys realize how much is at stake when a commercial driver receives a traffic citation. Our lawyers take this type of offense very seriously and work hard to prevent the ticket from going on record, that way their job can stay secure.
