Traffic Ticket Attorney

Habitual Traffic Offenders

A habitual traffic offender (HTO) is defined as any driver who is convicted of three major traffic offenses within a period of seven years. An HTO designation means your license can be revoked for up to 5 years. Typically the HTO designation works as a trap, as many HTO’s find it difficult to live and work in Colorado without driving. At some point during the 5 year revocation, the HTO is caught driving again and they then face jail sentences and even longer driver’s revocations that have no end in sight.

Penalties for Habitual Traffic Offenders

As per Colorado habitual offender law, there are some severe punishments in the state for driving as a habitual offender. The sentence for a conviction comprises compulsory prison time, heavy fines, and the automatic year extension of your driver’s license cancellation. Apart from them, you are not allowed to drive until your license is reinstated.

Colorado’s HTO law was reformed in 2010 to embrace a compulsory minimum jail sentence of 30 days and the obligatory minimum penalty of $3,000, any of which can be deferred upon completion of up to 300 hours of useful public service. In such case, probation is precisely not authorized.
