CDL Ticket in Iowa!
In Iowa, if you are a commercial driver and you receive a traffic ticket, including a speeding ticket, the penalties can be more severe than they are for non-commercial drivers. This is because commercial drivers are held to a higher standard of safety on the roads due to the size and weight of their vehicles.
If you receive a CDL ticket in Iowa, you must notify your employer within 30 days. Failure to do so can result in fines and even the loss of your CDL. Additionally, some traffic violations can result in the suspension or revocation of your CDL, including:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Committing a felony with your commercial vehicle
- Driving with a suspended or revoked CDL
- Speeding excessively
- Reckless driving
The penalties for these violations can vary, but they can include fines, points on your driving record, suspension or revocation of your CDL, and even jail time. It’s important to consult with an attorney who specializes in traffic violations and CDL defense if you receive a CDL ticket in Iowa.
