Let a Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer Help

Getting a ticket can not only be a drag for most people, but it can also be particularly problematic for a commercial motor vehicle driver. Illinois is particularly harsh about how it treats truck drivers who acquire a traffic ticket.

If you’re a commercial driver who was given a ticket or traffic citation by law enforcement, let me help. I, Attorney Mitch Furman, provides Chicago residents with a high level of advocacy and guidance. The sooner I hear about your case, the sooner I can begin to mount a defense on your behalf.

Notification of Employer

Commercial motor vehicle drivers must always possess a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL). If someone with a CDL holder obtains a ticket in the state of Illinois, he or she must notify his or her employer within 30 days of receiving the citation.


Serious offenses can result in your CDL being revoked, which can prevent you from working at all. Offenses that could lead to a CDL disqualification include tickets for reckless driving, refusing a chemical test, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Most disqualifications penalties are as follows:

  • 1st violation: 1-year suspension; 3 years if transporting hazardous materials
  • 2nd violation: lifetime suspension

Some DUI offenders could be eligible for reinstatement after 10 years, but this still is not an ideal situation if you depend on commercial trucking to earn a living.
