Good afternoon:

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general legal information regarding your CDL question.

May I ask, what ticket(s) were you issued as a result of this incident? This will allow me to more accurately discuss the point consequences of the accident.

Ok, thank you for that information.

Was your ticket for following too closely or for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident or something similar to that?

The exact statute (or offense) you are alleged to have committed does play an important role in: CDL disqualification and point assessment.

Expert:  Legal-Kal replied 1 year ago.

Many offenses apply even though you are driving a personal vehicle, so this is why the information I am requesting is important and plays a role in this discussion, generally.
