Speeding Tickets in Colorado | Forgiveness is Not Common

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Aug 07, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sometimes, we resort to speeding when we have important places to get to. For one man, a time crunch led to speeding. He was pulled over for going 85 mph in a 70 mph speeding zone. When speaking with the police officer, he told him he was driving his daughter to her Special Olympics practice. The father had also just lost a family member. The officer must have felt compassion towards the father when he gave him a warning instead of a ticket. Though there are many situations similar to this one, not everyone is as lucky when it comes to speeding in Douglas or Arapahoe County. Unfortunately, police are rarely understanding. An experienced criminal defense lawyer is essential if you've received any speeding tickets in Colorado. Let's take a closer look at what the law states about Speeding in Colorado.

What is Speeding in Colorado?

Speeding, C.R.S. 42-4-1101, occurs when someone drives a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the existing conditions. Many people in Jefferson County are pulled over and given tickets because officers are trying to reach ticket quotas. In some cases, police pull people over for speeding to check if they've been drinking. This, of course, can lead to a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired) charge. Like the man in this news story, we hear of many cases where people were speeding due to time constraints or struggles in their personal lives. Unfortunately, these are not always enough to let people off the hook when facing a speeding ticket. You need to consult an expert criminal defense lawyer if you've been given any speeding tickets in Colorado.
