Aiding or Abetting Drag Racing, Speed Contest

Colorado Traffic Ticket Attorney Monte Robbins defends clients who have been charged with aiding or abetting a drag race, also called a speed contest, or exhibition acceleration, or exhibition of speed.

In Colorado it is illegal for a person to aid or abet a driver in a speed contest or exhibition. The statute that prohibits aiding or abetting a drag race, speed contest is very subjective, and offers limited guidance as to what a jury may construe as aiding and abetting. The statute cites facilitating, or preparations incident to a speed contest. Also included are obstructing a highway via barricade or obstruction or assisting another person in placing a barricade or obstruction upon a highway.

Under the Colorado state statute, a person who assists a speed contest in the many proscribed by statute is punished the same as the driver in the speed contest. Aiding or abetting is punishable by jail of 10 days to 90 days, restitution, court costs, fines, community service, 12 points against a driver’s license, and subsequent suspension of a driver’s license. This charge is a Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
