Reckless Driving Lawyer in Jefferson County, Colorado - Bigger Than Careless Driving

Jefferson County Reckless Driving Lawyer

Let's consider what makes Reckless Driving king among the traffic offenses you and I will commonly encounter. Read about Reckless Driving Lawyer in Denver.

Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles Hearing - DMV Denver Lawyer

DMV-License.jpgDMV Hearings for Driver License Suspension or Revocation

In many cases, people in Denver, Adams County and across Colorado receive a letter from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling them that their driver's license is about to be suspended or revoked. This requires a hearing at the DMV to understand and challenge the reason for the revocation or suspension. At this DMV Hearing, your traffic criminal defense lawyer can challenge the reasons offered by the government and try to keep your license in effect. Being the subject of a revocation hearing is no fun, since a Colorado driver's license is essential to get to work, school, and medical appointments. Driving is essential to our way of life. If you value your Colorado driver's license, you must get a lawyer to defend you against the State of Colorado who is trying to take away your license.

Traffic Law: Leaving the Scene of An Accident in Denver

The crime of Leaving the Scene of an Accident, or Hit and Run, can be charged with the risk of a heavy prison sentence, if a person is involved in a collision or automobile accident leaves the scene, and a person in either vehicle suffers serious bodily injury or dies. Under C.R.S. 42-4-1601, the Colorado lawmakers have set forth a strict scheme in Douglas County and across Colorado designed to greatly increase prior penalties which were thought to be too weak for the traffic crime of Leaving the Scene. While ignorance of the law is no excuse, we doubt that these more severe penalties will reduce the number of Hit and Run Collisions in Colorado.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident is a Felony - Traffic, C.R.S. 42-4-1601

Traffic accidents sound like DMV license issues.  But, did you know that if someone is seriously injured or killed in a traffic accident and you leave the scene, you will be facing felony charges and up to 12 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections prison system?

Traffic: Boulder County DA Decides Charges in Fatal Crash

Boulder County District Attorney, Stan Garnett, is waiting for the police reports before deciding whether to file charges in a fatal Louisville, Colorado traffic accident. A man and his teenage daughter were killed by a young woman who allegedly drifted into their lane and hit them head on. When people die in traffic accidents, Denver, Adams, and Weld County prosecutors have quite a few different charges to consider with penalties ranging from mild to severe.

Traffic - Penalty Change in Leaving the Scene of an Accident, 42-4-1601

On June 6, 2012, Colorado's Governor Hickenlooper signed into law House Bill 12-1084, which increases the penalty for the traffic charge Leaving the Scene of an Accident resulting in serious bodily injury in Denver, Jefferson, Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas County, from a class 5 to a class 4 felony. This crime is similar to the crime of Failure to Report an Accident.  C.R.S. 42-4-1606.  The increased penalties will take effect this August unless a referendum petition is filed.

Colorado Traffic Ticket Compact States

If you get a traffic ticket in a Colorado county like Jefferson, Arapahoe or Adams, and move to another state without resolving the ticket in Colorado, your license in the other state will be in jeopardy. Colorado is among a group of states known as "Compact States" or "Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC) states", which support each other's efforts to resolve traffic tickets. In this example, the other state will suspend your license or not allow you to get a new one, until you resolve the Colorado matter.

Denver Careless Driving Attorney

TRAFFIC - A school bus crash in Moffat County Colorado on April 16th, 2012, is making news. Moffat County, Colorado, along with Routt and Grand County, make up the 14th Judicial District, which includes mountain municipalities such as Winter Park, Steamboat Springs, Grand Lake, Granby and Craig. An officer of the Craig Police Department said that as the bus driver drove the bus back to the garage after dropping the school children off, she rear-ended the bus in front of her before heading in a northwest direction into the field behind the baseball diamond. Then, as the bus neared the baseball field, it hit a light pole and ran over a chain link fence. The bus driver was injured and taken to the hospital in Craig.
