Types of CDL Violations We Defend Against

Commercial drivers are subject to an extensive range of regulations, making them vulnerable to a variety of CDL violations. From speeding citations to overloading vehicles to driving without a valid CDL, the legal implications can be significant. Securing trusted counsel from a skilled CDL defense lawyer is imperative to avoid serious penalties, including hefty fines and the suspension or revocation of your commercial driver’s license. 

Fortunately, our firm has extensive legal knowledge and experience to defend against a wide range of CDL violations. Common types of commercial driving violations we defend against include: 

Excessive Speeding

For commercial drivers, the penalties for exceeding posted speed limits are often more severe than a simple fine. Potential penalties for excessive speeding include points on your CDL, increased insurance rates, and the suspension or revocation of commercial driving privileges. At Riley Legal, we understand the legal complexities of speeding and traffic regulations to contest these charges effectively.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving charges not only threaten your immediate driving privileges, but can also tarnish your professional reputation. In Maryland, a conviction for reckless driving can lead to hefty fines, CDL suspension, and even incarceration. It's essential to consult with a qualified attorney as soon as possible to avoid potentially life-altering consequences. Our firm has a proven track record of results in reckless driving cases and can build you a strong defense to mitigate or dismiss the charges against you. 

DUI Offenses

Operating a commercial vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) is a major offense that state law takes very seriously. Penalties include long-term suspension of your CDL, significant fines, and potential jail time. Our trusted team can provide the aggressive defense you need to challenge these charges and avoid the life-changing repercussions of a DUI conviction. 

Overloading & Improper Loading

Exceeding weight limits or improperly securing loads can also result in a CDL violation. Penalties may include fines, points on your license, and other serious consequences. Our firm can ensure you fully understand the charges against you and represent your best interests effectively throughout the legal process.
