Resolve your driving violations with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Driving violations, for some, are not a big issue. After getting a ticket, they just pay and move on with their lives. However, that doesn’t work all the time. For some people, driving violations may cause a host of problems, including the possibility of accumulating points on their driving record. In other cases, violations may result in jail time or license suspension or revocation.

While some penalties can be minor, some may affect your life in huge ways. It helps to have experienced criminal defense attorneys fighting for your rights and future. These professionals have ample knowledge of traffic laws, so they can help you navigate the legal system. They can provide you with effective legal action, explore your options, and make the best decisions until the matter is resolved.

At Snowmass Law, we have extensive experience in providing legal counsel and representations for clients charged with criminal offenses, including serious driving violations. The state of Colorado doesn’t take charges lightly, and neither do we. We investigate every case and collect relevant evidence to build strong defenses and ensure that our clients come out on top.

Understanding Colorado's Traffic Laws

Here’s a list of some driving violations as well as felony and misdemeanor traffic offenses a driver might be accused of doing in Colorado:

  • Driving Under Revocation (DUR)
  • Driving Under Suspension (DUS)
  • DUI/DWAI Charges
  • Speeding Tickets
  • Habitual Traffic Offender
  • CDL Issues
  • Careless/Reckless Driving Citations
  • Texting While Driving
  • Driving without a License
  • Driving with No Insurance
  • Child Restraint/Seat Belt Violations
  • Failure to Stay at the Scene of an Accident
  • Failure to Report an Accident
  • Hit-and-Run


Each driving violation has a point value assigned to it. Per Colorado’s point system, adult drivers who accumulate a total of 12 points in any 12 consecutive months or a total of 18 points in any 24 consecutive months can face driver’s license suspension.

Drivers aged 21 may have their license suspended if they accrue a total of nine points in one year. The same goes for minors who accrue a total of six points in one year. On top of having their points accumulate, their insurance costs may also skyrocket.
