Why is getting a citation while possessing a CDL (commercial driver license) different than getting a citation while possessing a normal license?

Commercial drivers are held to a much higher standard than a typical driver. As a result, a citation with a CDL is serious. There are some specific laws that govern what it is that permits someone to have a CDL and continue to be a commercial driver. In a circumstance where a commercial driver receives a citation for any sort of either moving or even non-moving violation, the impact that that can have goes far beyond that of a standard driver. As a result, it really is circumstantial and they need to speak with a lawyer who’s very knowledgeable on CDL laws to ensure that they are not going to jeopardize their livelihood or any sort of potential future employment.
