CDL Traffic Violations
At some point or another, most drivers may face a situation where they are pulled over and ticketed for a moving traffic violation. In Upstate New York, it’s important to speak with a knowledgeable Ulster County NY commercial driver’s license lawyer who can explain your rights and possibly get your ticket reduced or even eliminated.

If you depend on driving a truck to make your living, even one motor vehicle violation can have a negative impact on your ability to do your job. Additionally, the owner of the truck can also be held liable in some instances. I have experienced defending and winning cases for truck drivers and truck owners.Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)
New York requires certain drivers to have a commercial driver’s license. This means that, in order to drive some trucks, buses, vans, etc., the driver must be properly trained and tested to make sure they have the skills to operate those vehicles. The extra protection focuses on the type of vehicle being driven and requires that drivers be properly trained.
If you drive a school bus drivers, tractor trailer, hazardous material vehicle, tank, and others, and you’ve received a traffic ticket, you are at risk for fines, points and maybe losing your CDL. If that happens, you will also be looking for other work!
A CDL is earned and granted state-by-state. However, if your CDL is in jeopardy in New York, and it gets taken away, you won’t be able to use it elsewhere. Additionally, points on your CDL issued by a New York traffic court transfer to your out of state license.Talk to Me About Protecting Your CDL
