When your livelihood depends on driving, a traffic violation can cause serious challenges. You rely on your driving record for your current employment and any future employment. Your employer and your employer's insurance company are frequently checking your record. If your employer believes its auto insurance will go up because of your traffic violation, the company could fire you.

Our New York commercial license traffic violation attorney has more than 10 years of experience focused on defending clients against driving infractions, DWAI, and other traffic violations. Whether you are a cab/taxi driver or a commercial truck driver, we can help. Contact our law firm to learn more.
Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI)
In New York, you do not have to be legally intoxicated to put your job at risk. Even two beers — anything above a .06 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) — can cause your license to be suspended for a year. "Driving while ability impaired" is a lower-level driving offense that can lead to serious fines and at least 90 days' license suspension. Like a drunk driving offense, it will stay on your record for many years, making it very difficult for you to find another commercial driving job.
Fighting to Keep Your License
Our Staten Island and Manhattan CDL lawyer, Seth Ian Katz, understands New York's driving laws and the options available to his clients. Depending on your specific circumstances, he may be able to negotiate the DWAI down to a non-alcohol related offense or, in the best case scenario, have your charges dismissed.
