Penalties for Denver Traffic Tickets (520 W. Colfax Ave. Courthouse)

The Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse located at 520 West Colfax Avenue handles traffic violations that are prosecuted by the Denver District Attorney's Office under state laws (the Colorado Revised Statutes).  Some of the most common Misdemeanor traffic violations prosecuted are Hit-and-Run, Careless Driving, Careless Driving Resulting in Injury/Death, DUI, DWAI, DUI Marijuana, Reckless Driving, Habitual Traffic Offender, Driving Under Restraint, Driving Under Restraint Alcohol, Driving Without Ignition Interlock, DUI probation violations, Drag Racing/Speed Contest, and Speeding (both infractions and offenses) initiated by the Denver Police Department and the Colorado State Patrol

The Denver Sheriff's Department does not have a traffic patrol division and therefore does not issue traffic tickets.  The Denver Sheriff's Department's functions are limited to  overseeing the jail, court security, prisoner transportation, extraditions, fugitive recovery, K-9 operations, work release, community corrections, and DenverHealth security.

The possible penalty for a Class 1 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense (MT1) is 10 days up to 1 year in jail and a fine of $300 up to $1000.  The penalty for a Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense (MT2) is 10 days up to 90 days in jail and a fine of $150 to $300.  Additionally, points will be assessed against a driver's record based upon the disposition in the case.  Restitution is possible in any criminal or criminal traffic case.

Some traffic offenses carry their own possible penalty such as Driving Under Restraint, Driving Under Restraint-Alcohol, and DUI/DWAI.  These offenses are characterized as "Unclassified Misdemeanors". 

Both Class A and Class B Traffic Infractions carry a possible penalty of $15 to $100 (plus fines and court costs) and a point assessment against the driver's record based upon the disposition in the case.

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"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked.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sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked.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
