The punishment for certain offenses involving windshields and motor vehicle offenses will be lowered under a bill passed by the Colorado legislature. The legislation follows the 2021 recommendations of the Colorado Criminal and Juvenile Justice Commission and is a massive reform bill related to misdemeanors and petty offenses.
Under the bill offenses for certain windshield violations, such as obstructing the windshield or wiper blades, are lowered from a misdemeanor to a Class A Traffic infraction. Also, certain offenses by a motor vehicle repair facility or employee such as failing to provide a written estimate are changed from a misdemeanor to a petty offense.
