Speeding Tickets

Colorado Speeding Ticket Attorneys

Speeding, C.R.S. 42-4-1101, in Denver, Jefferson, and Arapahoe County can increase your insurance rates, and you could possibly lose your driver's license. The purpose of speeding laws is to create safer roads and prevent traffic accidents. As attorneys, we often see officers use speeding as a reason to stop drivers to see if they have been drinking. Police departments often keep statistics of the number of traffic tickets their officers give out to make certain they are adequately enforcing traffic laws. Officers who do not meet their ticket quotas can lose promotions or face disciplinary action.

Speeding Ticket Depends on the Officer

Most police departments in Adams or Douglas County are gracious to drivers going only slightly over the speed limit, but this leniency is by no means universal. We have witnessed drivers receive speeding tickets for driving only one mile per hour over the speed limit. Officers who are more desperate to meet their ticket quotas are more likely to give tickets for speed violations, no matter how low.

Protecting your driver's license and

insurance rates is important. Contact an attorney now.
