Traffic tickets can affect your driver’s license
Traffic tickets and traffic violations can affect your drivers license. You have a right to challenge any ticket you get that can give you points against your license.
Driving without a license is taken very seriously. While some jurisdictions allow a driver to get his license back and will dismiss the charges, other jurisdictions insist on jail. Knowing which jurisdiction you’re in can make a big difference in how to approach the defense of your case.
In Colorado, when a police officer issues Traffic tickets, he is charging a person with either a “traffic offense” or a “traffic infraction.” Traffic offenses include the possibility of jail, so these offenses and allow a defendant the right to a jury trial. Traffic infractions do not include the possibility of jail, so do not allow for the possibility of a jury trial. All trials for traffic infractions are to a judge and called “bench trials.”
