Traffic crimes may not be something everyone often thinks about or are overly familiar with. The consequences, however, for many traffic crimes can be serious. Being accused of a DUI/DWAI in Colorado is obviously a cause for concern for anyone. It can change an individual's life forever in a single instant.
There are a number of traffic offenses that can lead to serious consequences such as a DUI/DWAI, eluding, failure to report an accident or involvement in a hit-and-run accident. Leaving the scene of an accident is also serious and given modern technology and resources available to law enforcement, accountability for leaving the scene of an accident has only increased. Drug charges can also be associated with a traffic stop and, of course, are always serious criminal charges.
