Consequences of a Commercial DWI Conviction

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) always carries harsh penalties with it. Since drunk driving puts people's lives in danger, there are sever punishments involved, and those who drive professionally and are behind the wheel more than average are naturally held to higher standards. For your average driver, a DWI arrest can be made with a blood- or breath-alcohol level of 0.08% or higher. As an individual with a commercial driver's license (CDL), you only need to register a 0.04% for your license to be revoked for a minimum of one year, along with receiving all the regular DWI penalties.

Even when driving a non-commercial vehicle, if you hold a commercial driver's license and is arrested for a DWI (needing a 0.08% alcohol concentration to be arrested, in this case), your license will be suspended for a minimum of one year. Also, if you are convicted of two or more such violations, your license could be revoked for life. As a commercial driver, DWIs are extremely hazardous and could permanently and irrevocably damage your career. If you are a commercial driver and you are facing charges of DWI, whether they are your first or subsequent charges, you will need the counsel and legal representation of a Houston DWI defense attorney to ensure that your livelihood is not affected by faulty charges.
