If you have a commercial driver's license, then you know the dangers of being cited for traffic violation that involves a point on your driving records, if you are convicted. A point going on your commercial driving record can have a devastating impact on your license, and your career as a commercial truck driver. If at all possible, it is very important that you fight your traffic ticket, so that you can avoid having a point placed on your driving record.
Commercial traffic citations can be difficult to deal with. If you were driving your commercial vehicle when you are cited for a point violation, then you are not eligible to attend traffic school, which means that the point will go on your record if you are convicted.

Our San Bernardino County traffic attorney comes from a family of commercial license holders, and knows the importance of maintaining a clean driving record as a truck driver. Call us today at 760-948-0630 to schedule your free consultation to find out how Martell Law Corp. can help you.
The point system for commercial driver's is somewhat different that of the standard Class "C" license. With many point offenses, if you are driving your commercial vehicle, a conviction will result in 1.5 points on your driving record, rather than the standard 1 point system. Some traffic violations result in 2 or more points on your driving record, or even an automatic suspension and/or revocation of your commercial driver's license. When trucking is your livelihood, there is too much at stake to just plead guilty and pay the bail on a traffic violation. The point(s) on your record could cost you your job and/or make it even more difficult to find a commercial trucking job in the future. Since you cannot attend traffic school to deal with points on your driving record, when you were driving your commercial vehicle, it becomes ever more important to make sure that you don't plead guilty to the point violation, and at least try to fight your ticket in court. You cannot afford to lose your job, or have your commercial driver's license suspended or revoked.
