Assessment of Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Holders' Traffic Violations, Convictions, and Suspensions

The study tracked the final disposition of a citation from issuance in several different States. This process determined if a major or serious traffic offense for a CDL holder resulted in a conviction, an exoneration, a suspension, or a non-suspension. The research also identified the process gaps when a conviction occurred that failed to result in the appropriate disqualification or suspension of a driver’s CDL. Process gaps could have included a court’s failure to transmit a disqualified or suspended CDL to the State Driver Licensing Agency (SDLA) or a SDLA’s failure to disqualify or suspend the CDL when required. The study investigated why courts were not promptly or accurately reporting convictions (related to major and serious traffic offenses) of CDL holders.
