Protecting Commercial Drivers
As a commercial driver, your CDL is the cornerstone of your career. DUI charges threaten to shatter that cornerstone. A conviction for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol could cost you your job, your paycheck and your livelihood. Even a temporary CDL suspension/disqualification can permanently mar your driving record and jeopardize your employment.
