North Carolina Holds Commercial Drivers To A Higher Standard
Our state DWI laws hold drivers with a CDL to a stricter standard than others on the road. If you are driving your commercial vehicle at the time you are pulled over, the legal blood alcohol limit is much lower than someone in a passenger vehicle. A BAC of .04 or above is enough to be charged with a DWI under your commercial license.
A conviction for a CDL DWI also carries harsher penalties than those for other drivers. License revocation periods are generally longer, and multiple offenses can lead to loss of your commercial license altogether.
There’s No Time To Waste
If you have been charged with a DWI, contact an attorney right away. Your license will automatically be under administrative suspension, which you only have 10 days to appeal. A conviction can lead to disqualification from driving commercial vehicles for a year in addition to fines and other consequences. With your job on the line, make sure you have someone on your side advocating for your interests.
