Protecting Your CDL And Your Career

For professional drivers in Ohio and throughout the U.S. (those with CDLs and other special driving privileges), a traffic ticket, even a minor citation, can have serious consequences. More than just a fine or a few points added to your license, pleading guilty to a traffic violation could result in the loss or suspension of your CDL, and subsequently, the loss of your job.

Whether You're From Ohio Or Just Passing Through, I Can Help

When it comes to traffic violations and other types of legal issues, there's really no substitute for working with someone with years of experience handling cases in the communities where your incident occurred.

I am Robert R. Hart, Jr., and I have been representing drivers in Ohio — including commercial drivers, cross-country truck drivers and others with professional licenses — for over 30 years.

If you have been cited for speeding, OVI/DUI, exceeding weight violations on specified roads or highways or other violations, it's important to obtain representation from a lawyer who knows the local laws, the courts and how they factor into the specifics of your case.

Below are just a few of the potential consequences both CDL-related violations and general violations can have on your license:

  • CDL holders can lose their driving privileges if they are cited for violations while in their personal vehicles and off the clock.
  • If a CDL driver commits two traffic violations in a three-year period, the driver may lose his or CDL license for a minimum of 60 days.
  • If a CDL driver has three violations within a three-year period, he or she can face a 120-day CDL suspension.
  • CDL drivers who fail to notify their employers of previous traffic convictions occurring outside of Ohio can also face penalties.
  • CDL drivers caught with .04 blood alcohol content (BAC) or under the influence of illegal substances can receive a one-year license suspension.
  • CDL drivers caught carrying unsanctioned hazardous materials can face a one-year license suspension.
  • CDL drivers with two DUI convictions can face a lifetime revocation.

Of course, the circumstances and resulting consequences surrounding each case vary. If you have been stopped by the authorities, cited or arrested, it's important to act quickly and obtain representation.

Whether you live and work in Ohio or elsewhere, I encourage you to reach out to me and learn how I can help your case. By working together, we can mitigate the consequences, pursue a dismissal or at the very least a reduction of the charges and take meaningful steps toward protecting your CDL privileges.
