Traffic Violations, Speeding Tickets, Suspended License in Colorado

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 fines, court costs, and increased insurance costs. While a single traffic ticket can raise your insurance rates and make you a target for the police, several traffic violations can result in the suspension of your driver’s license and potentially habitual traffic offender (HTO) status.

  • Careless/Reckless Driving Citations
  • Driving Under Revocation (DUR)
  • Driving Under Suspension
  • Habitual Traffic Offender Citations

Under Colorado’s points system, an adult over 21 years old will lose their license for at least one year if they accumulate 12 points over 12 months or 18 points over 24 months. For drivers under 21, automatic license suspension occurs with even fewer points. At any age, several minor traffic tickets that seem inconsequential at that instant can add up, marking a driver as a habitual traffic offender (HTO status) and resulting in a 5-year license suspension.
