Even speeding tickets can affect a CDL

Your career is in your hands when you’re holding the steering wheel. Anyone with a commercial driver’s license knows that you’re never truly off the clock. What you do on your own time in your own vehicle will reflect on your career—and potentially damage it.

While any traffic incident can affect your CDL, the most serious offenses are DUI, negligent driving that causes a fatality and leaving the scene of an accident. However, even speeding tickets can cost a lot more than the fines. By state law, two serious traffic violations in a three-year period will lead to license suspension.
