A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. The general rule in most places is that insurance follows the vehicle. It isn't fully clear what that provision that you cited means. The word "none" there doesn't seem to help. But it would...View More
I stopped at a stop sign. Looked both ways and drive through an intersection with the right of way. When I started going through the intersection, there were no cars. As I proceeded through the intersection 90% through the first lane I was hit by a car I presume to be speeding or distracted. A... View More
Your first court date is typically just an arraignment date in which you enter a plea of not guilty, no contest or guilty. They will then give you a court date for your trial. If you would like to go forward with your trial, I would suggest you request that the court issue a subpoena for the...View More
I was rear ended on 12/18/2019 and received an unlawful lane usage and no insurance ticket when in fact I used my signal before I changed lanes and the other driver wasn’t paying attention because he hit me way long after I put my signal on and switched lanes and had to have my vehicle towed home...

A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry about your accident. I hope you and your children are okay. That's a considerable amount of time that elapsed. Only a local attorney could advise about statute of limitations issues, which are...View More
More information is needed, however if it's a garden variety careless operation citation, you should not be facing any jail time. That said, any moving traffic citation (which careless operation is), can impact your insurance rates and thus, your pocket book monthly, for a few years so I...View More
It was believed this ticket was taken care of 15 years ago. In Maury county Tennessee. Recently found out there is no warrant but an amount of money owed. Is this past the statute of limitations or would I be able to set up a payment plan as I live paycheck to paycheck and live in another state... View More
You should probably go to court and request a reduction of the fines and enter a payment plan. This case arises under traffic ticket law. You need to discuss with an attorney in your jurisdiction that specializes in this kind of law. Thank you for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.

I have my own insurance policy which states that my insurance will transfer to “non own auto” can I use this as proof of insurance. Also how can I fix the registration violation and the sticker violation?
The court should allow your personal insurance as proof of insurance on the date you were driving. As for the registration, you should ask the court to dismiss since you are not the registered owner. Contact a traffic ticket attorney in CO for assistance.
Oct 29th Officer tailed me continuously flashing his bright front headlamps, I slowed to under the speed limit 35/40. The officer continued the same action while lessening his distance from greater than to less a 2ft. The officer made a left with me and became disgusted with my low speed. He trys... View More
Sorry to hear that this happened to you but pleased you were exonerated. Giving him the middle finger probably was not the wisest thing to do. So, do you have a case against the officer for racial profiling or race harassment? Possibly, but without substantial damages, you probably won't get...View More
I think this is more Criminal Law than traffic tickets, you have not indicated that you were cited for any vehicle code violation, although having illegal substances in the care can ALSO be a VC violation. Contact a criminal defense attorney in the area in which you were cited.
the Speed Limit of 25 mph is unreasonable and illegal in the State of Colorado when not for a School zone or Residential area, between Parking Lots and a freeway with a 65 mph speed limit, elsewhere in Eagle County the speed limit in such areas is 45mph such as in Avon Colorado
Daughter was recently pulled over by an unmarked state trooper for what the trooper thought was ignoring a stop sign when in fact there is a incoming traffic does not stop sign is posted where he thought she almost came too close to another car when she legally had the right of way. He had no... View More
Having a knowledgable criminal defense attorney is always helpful, because "you don't know what you don't know". From what you have shared, it seems like there are some good defenses that could be used to help your child avoid a conviction for DUI.
I was making a left hand turn out of a single lane while leaving my neighborhood at an intersection with a traffic light. The light turned green and I proceeded left into a two lane, but merged into the far right lane to avoid glass near the left hand lane in the intersection. After I passed the... View More
Prosecution has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed a traffic offense----and you have a right (but you do not have to do so) to present a defense. It sounds like you have a defense---I would contact a traffic ticket lawyer or 3 in your area, discuss your ticket and...View More
Parked at a gas station to pee and cop pulls next to me in my car and get out and goes in store before I get out. But he was looking at my car all suspiciously so I waited. He stands at the door inside the store then comes back out flashing his lights in my car and come and bangs on my window and... View More
This sounds like a terrible scenario that you experienced. So sorry you lived through that.
If you were parked and only stopped because of suspicion that you committed a traffic infraction - an infraction for which the officer's story is not credible if he waited a significant amount...View More
The charge that you accused of is a class 2 misdemeanor traffic offense. It carries a possible penalty of 10-90 days in jail and/or a fine of $150-$300. Often, the ticket you receive allows you to resolve your case with the payment of a fine. It is also frequently the case that the prosecuting...View More
I sent a text to my coworkers that I had been pulled over and would be late so I have date and time proof, and I made a quick video of it once I realized what happened but nothing more concrete then that. I also have no way of proving I was sitting at home the whole day on the date he actually... View More
Sometimes a ticket or other type of charging document says "on or about" when referring to the date. That means that, if the date is wrong but only off by a day or so, then it's a harmless error. If it's a pretty far off date, then you have a strong argument for defending...View More
This is a tricky one. If you go to Court to resolve this issue, you are conceding that you were the person who received and was served with the ticket - and you will in turn lose any defense you have based on the wrong address. That said, depending upon what the ticket specifically says, you...View More
I was travelling over 8mph(33-34 mph is my speed) in a 25 mph work zone. A sherrif was coming in a opposite direction but didnt stop me. In this case, is it possible to get a speeding ticket without being stopped ?
There's a "last clear chance" doctrine that says, basically, if you can avoid a crash or if you can avoid hitting the person, then it's illegal. The video you refer to involved a driver who appeared to purposely hit the person. If it can be proved in court that she did so on...View More
I got a ticket in Centennial, CO and I lost the paper ticket. I checked their online database and they don't have an citations for me. I have no idea what jurisdiction issued the ticket, I tried Douglas County Sheriff and Lone Tree and nothing. How can I find out who issued the ticket so I can... View More
If you were issued the ticket within the Centennial city limits (that can be determined by an online search for a map of the boundary lines of Centennial), then the ticket was filed either with the Arapahoe County Court or, more likely, if it was a minor traffic violation, the City of Centennial...View More
