Even before conviction, drunk driving charges threaten the livelihood of commercial drivers. If your job and your financial future are in jeopardy because of a drunk driving arrest, seek help from the experienced DWI defense lawyers at Patrick J. Martinez & Associates.
About Commercial DWIs
Because commercial vehicles are often significantly larger than passenger vehicles, they have the potential to cause more damage and injury in an accident. Such public safety concerns demand higher standards for commercial vehicle operators. Unlike other drivers 21 and older, commercial drivers must have a BAC level below .04 in order to legally drive in New Mexico.
If a commercial driver is accused of drunk driving, their license is confiscated immediately. If you do not go through the administrative process to request a hearing with the Motor Vehicle Department, you could face license suspension while criminal charges are pending. That can leave you jobless for months.
