Fort Collins CDL DUI Lawyer
As a truck driver or one who depends on a driver’s license as a means of earning a living, a driving under the influence (DUI) charge can be devastating. Because a commercial driver’s license (CDL) is often equated with operating a large 18-wheel tractor and trailer, prosecutors tend not to look favorably upon those who drive under the influence.
In fact, the consequences for CDL holders charged with DUI or DWAI are more severe than a person operating a vehicle with a regular driver’s license. As an example, an individual operating a commercial vehicle with a CDL is not allowed the option of receiving a deferred sentence.
