A traffic offense can cost you time in jail, hefty fines and the loss of your driver’s license. Many people believe that traffic violations are insignificant, but each charge adds up and can eventually lead to serious consequences, especially if you didn’t challenge them in court. The lawyers at The Elliott Law Offices, P.C. have vast experience in defending traffic citations. We can work to protect your driving record.
Traffic rules are created to keep drivers safe. Therefore, when you violate one of the rules while you are driving in Colorado, there are numerous possible consequences. More important, you need to understand that if you keep getting traffic citations of any kind, the consequences get increasingly worse. If you are concerned about your driving record, it is essential to seek legal help from a qualified attorney.

Furthermore, traffic violations vary in severity and point total. Driving 50 miles above the speed limit results in heftier points on your record than, say, rolling through a stop sign. Examples of points assigned to various traffic violations include:
Consult with us at The Elliott Law Offices, P.C. for more information about your driving record to ensure that you never have to show up in a courtroom and face suspension and possibly the revocation of your license.
