Although certain types of traffic offenses are seen as felonies according to Colorado State Law, most serious traffic offenses are classified as misdemeanors. Almost every type of traffic offense results in fines and penalty points, but in some cases, a person may have their driver’s license suspended or revoked. They may also be required to partake in community service, attend classes and counseling, and/or serve jail time. If you have been pulled over and given a traffic citation, it may be beneficial for you to contact a criminal lawyer at Anderson & Carnahan, Attorneys at Law. With more than 30 years of combined experience, our team has the ability to represent a client in traffic court, and ensure that their rights are protected at all times.
Types of traffic misdemeanors and offenses include driving without proof of insurance, driving without a license, driving with a license while under suspension, driving with a license under restraint, DUI charges, careless or reckless driving, and speeding more than 25 miles an hour above the speed limit. Misdemeanor traffic offenses are divided into two classifications- Class One traffic offenses are the most serious type of misdemeanor traffic offenses, and Class Two traffic offenses are less serious traffic offenses. Class One offenses may include imprisonment, community service, in-home detention, and fines that may range from $300 to $1,000. A Class Two traffic offense may result in penalties such as a one to three month prison sentence, community service, in-home detention, and/or fines that range from $150-$300.
