What are class A traffic infractions in Colorado?

Class A traffic infractions are a category of Colorado traffic violations. Unlike Colorado traffic misdemeanors, infractions are not a crime, they are civil matters. Class A infractions are considered more serious than Colorado class B infractions. Common examples of class A infractions in Colorado include:

  • The Colorado infraction of failing to pay a toll
  • The Colorado infraction of failing to yield right-of-way while making a left
  • The Colorado infraction of driving through a safety zone
  • The Colorado infraction of underage DUI (first offense)

What are class A traffic infraction penalties in Colorado?

Infraction punishments include no incarceration. Instead, the sentence includes fines ranging from $15 to $100 plus a small surcharge. The Colorado DMV may also add points to the person's driver's license.

Other class A traffic infraction facts in Colorado

Anyone charged with traffic infractions in Colorado cannot have a jury trial but may seek a bench trial (where the judge hands down the verdict). Note that traffic infractions usually may not be sealed off a person's criminal records.
