Traffic Violation Cases We Represent in Breckenridge

There are two classifications of traffic violations: infractions and offenses. Infractions are broken down into Class A and B, while common traffic offenses are designated Class 1 or 2 misdemeanor offenses.

Depending on the violation and its severity determines the charge. For example, the Colorado General Assembly explains the scale of charges for speeding. Traveling one to 4mph over the speed limit is a Class A traffic infraction that carries a $30 fine. On the other extreme, a Class 1 misdemeanor traffic offense, travelling 25mph over the posted speed limit in a construction zone, carries a possible $1,000 fine and a year in jail.

Our team defends clients charged with any infraction or misdemeanor. We handle clients driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license. We can defend you against DUI charges in Breckenridge by challenging BAC machine calibrations and faulty readings. We can also defend you against a driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) charge. In addition, we represent clients charged with:

  • Reckless driving
  • Vehicular eluding
  • Fleeing the scene or a police officer
  • Failing to report an accident
  • Aggravated driving
  • Red light violations
  • Texting while driving

We Can Help You Avoid Adding Points to Your Driving Record

The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) adds points to your driving record every time you receive a traffic violation conviction. When enough points accumulate, the DMV suspends your license. As an adult driver, you risk suspension if:

  • You accumulate 12 points in a consecutive 12-month period
  • You accumulate 18 points in a consecutive 24-month period

In addition to points on your license, a conviction can cost your driving privileges and incur expensive penalties and fees. The inconvenient expense of losing your license could even affect your employment. If your occupation depends on a clean driver’s license, you may have no way to support yourself and your family. We can defend you against a traffic violation conviction. Our team can help you avoid these additional negative outcomes of a traffic violation conviction.

I was fortunate to have Ehren Penix handle my traffic case in Park County. He provides superb communication, guidance and knowledge of the relevant statutes. His background experience was very evident. Highly recommended!
- John Q., Google Review
Ehren Penix was very helpful and patient with me as I navigated the legal system for the first time (after receiving a traffic ticket). When I first reached out, he gave me multiple solution options without charging me and then was very thorough, competent and efficient when I elected to receive his help. I never expected this would be so painless! I would recommend him to anyone.
