All drivers on the road are subject to traffic laws that were put in place to protect the safety of others. Because of the large size of commercial motor vehicles (CMV), those who hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) are held to higher standards than other drivers, meaning they are also subject to certain traffic violations that other drivers are not. Some of these traffic violations can cause a driver to have their CDL disqualified or revoked. Most people who hold CDL’s use their CDL’s as a means for employment and becoming disqualified can put a great financial strain on their lives.
There are a multitude of traffic violations that can cause you to lose your CDL. Some of these traffic violations are unacceptable no matter the type of vehicle you are driving, but some violations are specific to those driving a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).
