A moving violation occurs while a driver is operating a vehicle and commits an offense. Moving violations are generally more serious than non-moving violations.
In Denver, traffic enforcement has increased in recent years due to the need for additional revenue and highly publicized traffic fatalities. In Colorado, traffic tickets result in “points” on your driving record. Insurance rates increase with a conviction for a moving violation. In addition, the accumulation of enough points will trigger a driver’s license suspension.
Both county, city and municipal courts handle traffic tickets in Colorado. If you have been accused of committing a traffic offense in Colorado such as speeding, you were served a summons with a date to return to court. Failure to appear at this court date will result in a default against you and the possibility of a warrant for your arrest.
