Many drivers consider traffic tickets an annoyance or inconvenience. However, if you hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL), your job may be at risk if you are ticketed. A simple speeding ticket on Interstate 10 or another one of the local Texas roads can lead to significant consequences.

Understanding the Consequences of a Traffic Violation
At a basic level, it adds points to your license, and it will likely spur a rate hike that could cost you thousands more when you renew your insurance policy. In addition, you may be facing additional consequences from your employer, even if you were not cited while driving your commercial vehicle.
Nevertheless, like so many other criminal charges, traffic warrants and speeding tickets also have a cumulative effect that can signal greater penalties in the future that may include a CDL suspension and loss of livelihood if you cannot do your job or get back and forth to work.
