Statesboro Traffic Violations LAWYER

Skilled Legal Representation in Bulloch County Traffic Courts

When receiving a traffic ticket in Georgia, you have two options. You can pay the fine attached or you can appear in court to contest the violation on the date given on the ticket. By paying the fine, you are admitting guilt which leads to points on your driving record and a likely increase in your insurance premiums. If your violation is considered a misdemeanor, it will result in a permanent criminal record.

How Does the Point System Work in Georgia?

Georgia operates on the points system for traffic violations. Violations can add two to six points to your driving record, depending on the serious of the offense. If you accumulate 15 points within a 24-month period, your face a license suspension.

Examples of Georgia traffic violations:

  • Aggressive driving: six points
  • Reckless driving: four points
  • Speeding 15 to 18 mph above the posted limit: two points
  • Speeding 19 to 23 mph above the posted limit: three points
  • Speeding 24 to 33 mph above the posted limit: four points
  • Speeding 34mph or more above the posted limit: six points
  • Failing to comply with a traffic control device: three points

What Are Georgia’s Traffic and Speeding Laws?

Most traffic violations in the state are considered misdemeanor crimes. Speeding, running red lights or stop signs, and almost all other moving violations are charged as misdemeanors. Georgia misdemeanors carry penalties of up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. It is unlikely that such tickets will result in an arrest but a misdemeanor conviction will stay on your record permanently.

Is Reckless Driving a Misdemeanor in Georgia?

Reckless driving is considered to be a misdemeanor criminal offense and is punishable by up to 12 months in jail or a fine of up to $1,000. When faced with this charge, it is important to contact us as soon as possible to have this handled.

Will a Traffic Violation Affect Insurance in Georgia?

Generally speaking, yes, a traffic violation in the state of Georgia can affect your car insurance rates. Insurance companies normally use your driving record to evaluate your risk as a driver and decide your insurance premiums. If you have a record of traffic violations, accidents, or other driving infractions, your insurance company will likely see you as a higher-risk driver and, as a result, could increase your rates accordingly. Ultimately, the impact on your insurance premiums will depend based on the violation committed, your driving history, and your specific insurance company's policies.
