Teller County Traffic Violation Lawyer
Traffic Tickets & Offenses
Whether you recently got arrested and charged with vehicular assault, and you worry that a felony conviction will ruin your business and lead to serious jail time; or you are a parent of a teenager who lost his license after collecting (and not paying) multiple speeding tickets, you want an accredited Teller County traffic violation defense lawyer to protect your rights. This essay examines common motor vehicle violations and gives you a potent resource to get personalized help with your charges.
Common Traffic Violations and Their Consequences
- Driving while your Colorado driver's license is under suspension
- Habitual reckless driving, speeding, and careless driving
- "Hit and run" (hitting another driver or a pedestrian and then fleeing the scene before providing information)
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics (DUI or DWAI)
- Vehicular assault
- Other habitual traffic offenses
Depending on the nature of your violation, you may face things like fines and court costs, suspension of your license, DMV points on your license, and even prison time. The indirect consequences can be just as bad – if not worse. For instance, if you lose your driver's license due to a reckless driving charge, you may no longer have a way to get to work, and you may thus lose your job. At the very least, a long license suspension or mandatory traffic school sentence can consume lots of time and attention and make it more difficult for you to take care of your family, to be productive at work, and to put the incident behind you.
You and your family are also likely concerned about your ability to drive safely and defensively in the future. The law punishes recidivist (repeat) traffic offenders harshly. For instance, multiple DUI offenders can find their penalties quickly ratcheted up and can face more jail time, higher court costs, and stricter probation for each DUI conviction.
