DUI with a commercial license in Dallas

Dallas DWI with a Commercial License

Commercial truck driving is considered a serious responsibility and those who carry this type of license are required to follow a much more stringent code of laws when driving than the standard passenger vehicle driver. In fact, the legal BAC limit for anyone who has a commercial license is 0.04% -half of the limit for non-commercial drivers, and it does not matter if you are driving a passenger vehicle at the time. If you have been accused of driving while intoxicated with a commercial license, please contact a top Dallas - Fort Worth Lawyer as soon as possible.

If you are convicted of this crime, you will face the same penalties as anyone else who is charged with a Texas DWI, but you will have less leniency and if you lose your trial, you will be forced to sacrifice your license for at least one year. While this may be an inconvenience for most people, it is a major challenge to those who rely on their driving privileges to make a living. Even worse, if you were driving a hazardous materials truck at the time, the license suspension will last three years and if you have ever had a DWI conviction in the past, it will be permanent. Fortunately, a Dallas - Fort Worth DWI attorney can help prove your innocence.

When you fail a breathalyzer test, you can still win your case. In fact, because commercial drivers are considered to have failed their breath test if they refuse to take it, you are often better off taking the test and failing then refusing it. Because 0.04% is such a low limit of alcohol intoxication and the breathalyzer is known for being inaccurate and often reporting false highs, your Dallas - Fort Worth Lawyer can often show that there is insufficient proof to convict you of drunk driving.

If you have been accused of drunk driving with a commercial license, it is critical you get the legal representation you need. Please call our offices today and schedule your free initial consultation with a top Dallas - Fort Worth DWI attorney.
