In the Collin County City of Plano, Texas, Class C and commercial drivers alike are written traffic tickets by police on a daily basis. While it can be a stressful experience to be written a citation no matter what class license one holds, it may be even more stressful to be written a ticket as someone who holds a commercial driver’s license. As a trucker or other professional CDL holder, you are required to maintain your clean driving record. As it may therefore be in your better interest to challenge your Plano CDL violation rather than plead guilty to it, a lawyer may be retained to assist you in doing so. Whether or not you were written your ticket at a D.O.T. stop, an experienced lawyer may be able to either fight your violation at trial, or plead your case for a possible deal.
Upon receiving your CDL or trucking violation by Plano police, it becomes your responsibility to respond to your charges by the date that they are due. If you fail to respond to your charges, neither disputing them nor pleading guilty, they will eventually fall into warrant status. When a Plano traffic ticket falls into warrant, it means that the Plano Municipal Court has issued a traffic warrant for the motorist at question. If you have been made aware of a warrant being issued for you by the court, your arrest is unfortunately imminent for as long as your warrant remains active. If you are hoping to steer clear of arrest, your warrant must be lifted. A Collin County CDL defense lawyer may be hired to lift your Plano warrant for you, if you are eligible, and may also post bond for you. To learn more, please call 817-685-0912 or contact me.
