A state must not mask, defer imposition of judgement, or allow an individual to enter into a diversion program that would prevent a CDL driver’s conviction for any violation from showing on the driver’s license record. But what actions constitute “masking” and how can a judge avoid it?
After attending this webcast, participants will be able to:
- Discuss what is meant by “masking” in 49 CFR § 4484.226;
- Recognize the safety-related reasons for defining “masking” as the Code of Federal Regulations defines it;
- Identify “masking” situations; and
- Describe how the prohibition on masking could impact a judge’s court or administrative tribunal.
