Fort Collins Traffic Violation Defense Attorney

Comprehensive Traffic Violation Defense in Northern Colorado

Many Colorado drivers have likely received a traffic ticket at some point in their lives. While speeding tickets and other moving violations are generally seen as an annoyance, these cases can add up to a more serious offense. You cannot simply ignore your ticket without paying the fine or contesting it in court. In addition, your moving violation may also be charged as reckless driving if the officer that pulled you over deems you were driving with a reckless disregard for others on the road.

This is a much more serious offense and should never be taken lightly. In addition, DUI charges, driving with a suspended or revoked license, or causing injury or death to others while behind the wheel can have a permanent effect on your future and your freedom. Protect your rights and your license by calling a skilled Fort Collins traffic lawyer as soon as possible.

The Importance of Legal Representation for Colorado Traffic Violations

In Colorado, many people mistakenly believe their only option after receiving a traffic citation is paying the ticket. However, doing so is considered an admission of guilt, which can result in higher insurance rates and even driver’s license suspension.

On the other hand, you could plead “not guilty” to the charges against you, either by mail or in person. Your ticket should provide the exact court’s name and location that must be notified, as well as the arraignment date.

If you wish to plead “not guilty” to the traffic charges, it is recommended to obtain the legal services of an experienced Colorado traffic lawyer to represent you in court and help you get your charges dismissed. Additionally, if obtaining a “not guilty” plea would prove difficult, your attorney could negotiate a more favorable outcome.

Understanding Habitual Traffic Offenders (HTOs) in Colorado

Under Colorado law, a habitual traffic offender (HTO) has been stopped for three severe traffic offenses in a seven year period. These offenses include DUI, driving under restraint, reckless driving, and more. HTOs face license revocation for five years, and, under Colorado Revised Statute 42-2-206, those stopped while driving after revocation prohibited (DARP) face Class One misdemeanor charges which may include jail time if convicted.

In addition, prosecution as a repeat offender can lead to substantially increased fines, driver's license suspension, mandatory attendance in special driver training and safety classes, and increased auto insurance premiums.
