Connecticut DUI Lawyers for Commercial Drivers

Stringent Standards for Commercial Vehicle Operators

In Connecticut, the laws with respect to alcohol consumption and commercial vehicle operators are different than for those driving passenger vehicles. Commercial drivers are held to much more stringent standards, even if they are not driving while fulfilling their employment duties. While the legal blood alcohol concentration limit is .08% for non-commercial vehicle drivers, this limit is reduced to .04% for commercial vehicle drivers. Commercial drivers who have .08% or more alcohol in their system are said to have elevated blood alcohol concentrations, and may face even more serious penalties.

Penalties for Commercial DUI

If you have been arrested and charged with a commercial DUI, you risk losing your license for a year and a 90-day suspension on your vehicle. In addition to this, if this is your second offense, you could be facing a lifetime CDL revocation. While Connecticut does have a diversionary program called the Alcohol Education Program for first-time offenders, CDL holders are now prohibited from enrolling in it. Because of this, it is absolutely essential to retain the services of knowledgeable Connecticut DUI attorneys to fight the charges and help you keep your CDL license.
