DENVER TRAFFIC ATTORNEY – DENVER TRAFFIC LAWYER – ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC OFFENSES

DENVER TRAFFIC ATTORNEY

Even if you are not facing an alcohol or drug-related offense, a traffic offense citation can have uncomfortable consequences, such as court fines and an increase in your insurance premiums. Contact a Denver traffic attorney today to discuss your case.  Depending on your driving record, it can even result in the suspension of your license. This is because in Colorado one can only accumulate only so many points on his or her driver’s license before the license gets suspended. If a person 21 years or older receives 12 or more points in any 12 month period, or 18 or more points in any 24 month period, his or her license will be suspended. If an individual between 18 and 21 years of age receives 9 or more points in any 12 month period, or 12 or more points within any 24 month period, his or her license will be suspended. If an individual under 18 years of age receives 6 or more points within any 12 month period, or 7 or more points in any 24 month period, his or her license will be suspended. Depending on the circumstances of your traffic case, there may be valid defenses available to you that can save you from fines, insurance premium increases, and the suspension of your license. Oftentimes in traffic matters we can even get your appearance waived, enabling your traffic matter to be resolved without you ever having to go to court. As such, it is important to consult a Denver traffic attorney at Decker and Jones now if you are facing a traffic offense allegation.

Major Traffic Offenses

Not only are these offenses treated more severely by Colorado law, but, under Colorado’s Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) law, the accumulation of these offenses may result in a lengthy driver’s license suspension. When any driver receives three or more “major” traffic offense convictions within any seven year period, he or she will face a five year period of revocation. Therefore, if you are facing any of the above offenses, or if a current charge places you in jeopardy of a five year HTO revocation, it is in your interest to contact Decker and Jones now to set up a free and confidential consultation and case evaluation. Colorado law designates certain types of motor vehicle related offenses as “major” traffic offenses, the accumulation of which can lead to more serious consequences. These offenses include: DUI DWAI DUID Reckless Driving Driving While Under Revocation or Suspension Vehicular Assault Vehicular Homicide Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving Death or Injury
