DUI Charges And CDL Drivers
Whether you are charged with drunk driving while operating a semitruck or a family sedan, the consequences are the same. The blood alcohol content (BAC) threshold is different, however.
- For people driving under a regular driver’s license, the BAC limit is .08
- For CDL truck drivers, the BAC limit is .04
If convicted of DUI/OVI, you face a one-year mandatory suspension of your CDL. For subsequent offenses, the penalties are even more severe.
The stakes are high in any case, because trucking companies are reluctant to hire drivers with drunk driving convictions on their records.
Defense lawyer Jon Horwitz understands the best way to avoid these consequences is by mounting an intelligent defense strategy. He will thoroughly explore every aspect of your case, including the stop, the arrest, blood and breath tests, to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
He is committed to helping truck drivers avoid the harsh consequences of DUI/OVI convictions.
