Savannah Commercial Driver DUI Lawyer

Commercial Vehicle Drivers and DUI Consequences

Understandably so, the laws and penalties for driving a commercial vehicle and being convicted of DUI are more stringent than those involving non-commercial vehicles. The legal limit of blood alcohol concentration for driving a commercial vehicle in Georgia is 0.04%. When a commercial driver is convicted of DUI, they automatically will lose their commercial driver's license (CDL) for a minimum of 12 months. At The Schneider Law Firm, our Savannah DUI attorneys know how important it is to keep your CDL in force, as it is the lifeblood of your personal income and occupation.

The situation becomes even more serious if you have been convicted of two or more of the following offenses in the past:

  • DUI while driving a commercial vehicle with a BAC over 0.04%
  • DUI while driving a non-commercial vehicle with BAC over 0.08%
  • DUI of any drug
  • Refusal to submit to chemical testing

If you are a CDL holder and you have been convicted of any two of these offenses, you will lose your CDL for life. It is critical that you contact an experienced and qualified Savannah DUI lawyer to help you fight the charge from our firm.

Preserve Your CDL and your Right to Earn a Living as a Driver

As a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney for 25 years, Cris Schneider is uniquely qualified to fight for your legal right to operate a commercial vehicle. He understands the strategic plans which drive the prosecutor's cases and is all too familiar with the common problems associated with the state's evidence and cases. Having experienced the common problems the prosecutor's office faces everyday with matters involving:

Attorney Schneider knows how to capitalize on the weaknesses of the state's case in chief and lead you to a victory in court. Obviously, if you are a commercial driver, your CDL is the most important part of your job. Without your CDL, you will not be able to earn a living driving a commercial vehicle.
