Lawyers for Reckless Driving Charges

Reckless Driving charges in Denver, Arapahoe, and Douglas County require the assistance of experienced criminal defense attorneys. Reckless Driving in Colorado (C.R.S. 42-4-1401) is defined as when someone "drives a motor vehicle, bicycle, electrical assisted bicycle, or low-power scooter in such a manner as to indicate either a wanton or a willful disregard for the safety of persons or property." A conviction of Reckless Driving in any Colorado County can have many devastating effects on a Colorado driver.

A person can be found guilty of Reckless Driving for many reasons. As the statute indicates, police in Lakewood, Aurora, and Denver have much latitude when they choose to charge someone with this offense. For instance, I have seen someone charged with Reckless Driving for failing to yield to oncoming traffic when making a left turn. This was obviously a case of overcharging. Our legal defense team was able to fight this charge and obtain a great outcome for our client.

There are two parts to every Reckless Driving traffic offense in Colorado. Whether in Jefferson, Adams, or Larimer County, a person convicted of Reckless Driving will face criminal punishment through the county court and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) punishment. The criminal punishment ranges from time in the count jail all the way through fines and court costs. The DMV punishment usually consists solely of points on your Colorado driver's license; eight (8) points to be exact. Sometimes, when a person already has points on their license, a conviction for Reckless Driving can be the determining factor in a person losing their license to operate a motor vehicle in the State of Colorado.

So how can an attorney help? When you are involved in an accident and the police wrongfully charge you with Reckless Driving instead of a more appropriate charge, we will fight to lower that charge and get you an outcome that is fair and acceptable. More importantly, when you didn't commit any actions at all that would be considered Reckless Driving, we will fight the case by forcing the District Attorney in El Paso, Weld, and Boulder County to realize they cannot prove their case and dismissing the charges.

When you are charged with Reckless Driving, you need an attorney who will fight. You need a lawyer who has the experience and determination to protect your rights from overreaching police. So, if you or a loved one have been charged with Reckless Driving, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call us at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
