The Increased Stakes for Commercial Drivers

Commercial drivers are held to higher standards than regular motorists. The legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for commercial drivers is 0.04%, half of the limit for other drivers. This stricter standard reflects the increased responsibility commercial drivers carry, especially when operating large vehicles or transporting hazardous materials. 

Consequences of a Commercial Driver DUI

A DUI conviction for a commercial driver can have far-reaching consequences. It can lead to the suspension or revocation of the commercial driver’s license (CDL), which is crucial for their employment. Additionally, it may result in increased insurance premiums, hefty fines, and even imprisonment. For commercial drivers, a DUI is not just a legal issue; it’s a threat to their professional and financial stability.
