Understanding The Consequences Of Traffic Violations
Traffic offenses charged in state courts are actually misdemeanor offenses, but they can still have negative consequences on your driving record and your criminal record. The best way to protect your license is to fight the ticket.
In Georgia, traffic offenses are charged in city courts, municipal courts and recorder’s courts. While traffic offenses can often be resolved without putting points on your license, increasing your insurance costs or facing license revocation, these courts are also some of the most crowded. Fighting a ticket is a time-consuming process that often requires you to take time off work, drive to the courthouse, sit around and wait for your name to be called. A typical calendar in the Recorder’s Court of DeKalb County is about 300 defendants. You could wait for hours for your case to be heard.
