Trust an Experienced DUI Attorney in Colorado Springs to Explain the Repercussions of a DUI / DWAI /D in Colorado
The penalties for a DUI/D or a DWAI/D can include incarceration time, fines, and license suspension – even for a 1st offense. The penalties become more severe for repeat offenses, which include mandatory jail time and installation of an interlock ignition device in your car.
Like many states, Colorado has an express consent law, meaning that you may be forced to take a chemical test or your license may be taken away for a set amount of time. If convicted of a DUI, additional collateral consequences may include inconvenience because of loss of driving privileges, increased car insurance premiums, and more.
