Tips For Avoiding a CDL License Disqualification From a Serious Traffic Offense

You’ve been handed a citation and you are wondering about the consequences. The following are tips on how to avoid a Commercial Driving License (CDL) disqualification or conviction for a serious traffic ticket offense:

  1. Do not simply pay the ticket. Under Pennsylvania law, paying a ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty to the violation.
  2. Do not rely on the advice of the police officer who gave you the citations even if you think his intentions are good.
  3. Do not write a letter to the Judge trying to explain your position. The Judge is not allowed to accept an ex parte (one-sided) communication from a defendant.
  4. Do not go to court without an experienced attorney.
