Man Sees CDL Speeding Violation ReducedSep 02 2016 in Case Results, Traffic Offenses
Not long ago, a man was attempting to visit his mother in the hospital but was pulled over by police for speeding and consequently charged with going 27 miles over the posted speed limit, which is a five-point traffic violation in Pennsylvania. The man, who was am Army veteran and Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holder did not want to see his driving record tainted or his employment negatively impacted by this CDL speeding violation, so he contacted the Pennsylvania traffic lawyer Samir Sarna for assistance.
Being well versed in Pennsylvania traffic law and procedure, attorney Sarna was able to appear in traffic court without his client needing to appear and spoke with the prosecutor and the officer involved. Sarna explained his client’s circumstances, which resulted in everyone agreeing to amend the charge to the lesser traffic citation of going five miles per hour over the limit. This lesser violation carried no points and the client was pleased to avoid any effect to his CDL with very little difficulty.
