If you are charged with a traffic violation (traffic infraction or traffic offense) within the City of Longmont that will come before the Municipal Court, you have the option to participate in a Traffic Safety Class.

The City Prosecutor may offer the option of Traffic Safety Class. By attending a Traffic Safety Class you may receive one point reduction from the standard plea offer (generally 2 points reduction from the original charge).

You are encouraged to participate in a Traffic Safety Class prior to your arraignment date (initial court date) to avoid continuances when possible.

WHAT IS REQUIRED IF I DECIDE TO ATTEND TRAFFIC SAFETY CLASS?

  • You MUST attend your arraignment date (initial court date) as indicated on the summons and complaint (ticket) you received from the officer.
  • You will be REQUIRED to appear for court again after you have completed the class.
  • You MUST bring your Traffic Safety Certificate with you when you come to court. You must also bring your parent or guardian to court if you are a juvenile.
  • You may NOT present your Traffic Safety Certificate to the court before your court date.
  • You may NOT present your Traffic Safety Certificate to the city prosecutor before your scheduled appointment or court date.
  • The court assessed fines and costs will NOT be reduced by attending a Traffic Safety Class.  All sentencing options are open to the Court as authorized by law. 

WHAT TRAFFIC SAFETY CLASS DO I TAKE?

For traffic violations such as speeding (24 mph or less), failure to yield, unsafe lane change, disregarding a stop sign, careless driving, and other non-aggravated violations, it is recommended that you take a Level One – Defensive Driving Class or equivalent (Alive @ 25 is equivalent).

For traffic violations involving aggressive driving, road rage, reckless driving, speeding (25 mph or greater), and other aggravated violations, it is recommended that you take a Level Two – Defensive Driving Class or equivalent.
