Protect Your Commercial Driver's License

Maryland traffic law is much tougher, generally,  on CDL holders than on “regular” drivers.


Certain offenses, such as drunk driving, are treated much differently when the accused is operating a CDL-required vehicle.  For instance, refusal to take a breath test as requested by a police officer can result in a one year suspension with no “work permit” or opportunity to use an “ignition interlock” (non-CDL holders can start their cars if sober).


Probation before judgment (PBJ) –keeping points off your driving record—may not help protect your CDL.  In some cases, a PBJ is just as bad as a conviction.  While a PBJ is good if it’s on a minor drunk driving charge, it won’t help you on a serious offense (DUI).


If you need my help or have questions about keeping your CDL, please call Richmond Davis, 410-730-5550.
