Many folks who call us ask this question and the answer is, YES, you do have to go to court. It is not uncommon in Colorado for officers to give a citation and summons to a person charged with DUI instead of arresting the person. A summons (the ticket) requires you to show up in court on the date the summons orders you to court. If you fail to appear, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest. If you find yourself cited with DUI or DWAI in El Paso County, Teller County, Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Monument, Fountain, Cripple Creek, or Pueblo call us immediately. The call is free and we are dedicated to helping people in your situation.
