It is not "just" a speeding ticket, and it is far more than a hit and run, or careless or reckless driving ticket — traffic tickets can mean hundreds and thousands of dollars in increased insurance costs. While a single traffic ticket can raise your insurance rates and make you a target for police, several traffic violations and habitual offender (HTO) status, or an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI), or DWAI, in Colorado will change your life even more dramatically.
A major traffic violation conviction may result in driver's license suspension or revocation, fines, mandatory classes and/or jail time. Considering these very real consequences for traffic violations, you should contact an experienced traffic defense attorney as soon as possible.

Under Colorado's points system, an adult over 21 years old with 12 points in 12 months or 18 points in 24 months will lose his or her driver's license for at least one year. For drivers under 21, automatic license suspension occurs with even fewer points. At any age, several minor traffic tickets that seem inconsequential can add up, marking a driver as a habitual traffic offender (HTO status) and resulting in a five-year license suspension.
