Westchester County Commercial DWI Attorney
Defending Those Facing DWI Charges in New York
Compared to other drivers, every driver holding a Commercial Driver License (Class A, B, C) is held to stricter Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) standards, and faces tougher penalties, while operating a vehicle that requires a CDL license. A single conviction for DWI, DWAI, or having a .04 percent or higher BAC requires a minimum 1–year revocation of the driver's license (3 years, if driving a vehicle that requires hazardous materials placards).
A second conviction within the driver's lifetime results in permanent revocation, with a possible waiver after 10 years. A third CDL DWI conviction results in a permanent revocation without any possibility of ever getting it back. Drivers who hold a commercial license should review the Commercial Driver's Manual (CDL–10), available at motor vehicle offices, for additional information about penalties that apply to them.
If you are a commercial driver who has been charged with a DWI or DWAI, schedule your free consultation with an experienced Westchester County DWI lawyer.
