Defense of Traffic Offenses
Driving under the influence or DUI is one of the most common traffic violations in the state of Georgia. Other traffic violations include driving too fast for conditions, reckless driving, drag racing, "laying drag", possession of marijuana in a vehicle, driving without insurance, driving with an open container, or receiving one or more speeding tickets if under the age of 21.
JNJ LAW can help whether you have had one traffic offense like a speeding ticket, multiple traffic offenses, or have been arrested for a more serious traffic violation such as driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs, alcohol, or any other chemical that can impair your judgment. JNJ LAW can also help teenage drivers who have received a speeding ticket, commercial truck drivers whose income depends on keeping their license and anyone who has lost or is at risk of losing their Georgia drivers license.
A moving violation:
- may result in points on your driver license
- will increase your insurance rates for years to come
- will result in significant fine penalties; and
- will impact the status of your driver's license, possibly causing a suspension and in some Georgia courts, probation!
Do not simply pay your Georgia speeding ticket, either online, by mail, or in person, without first
consulting a lawyer. Paying the fine is entering a guilty plea, and may result in the assessment of points on your driver's license. For drivers under the age of 21, conviction on a four point offense, including speeding 24 mph or greater, will result in suspension of your drivers license. As a commercial truck driver with a CDL, you may lose your employment as a result of a speeding ticket or other traffic ticket violation.
Georgia point schedule for speeding tickets:
15mph but less than 19mph over the posted speed limit = 2 points
19mph but less than 24mph over the posted speed limit = 3 points
24mph but less than 34mph over the posted speed limit = 4 points
More than 34mph over the posted speed limit = 6 points
GEORGIA ‘SUPER SPEEDER’ LAW
Georgia Driver Services will notify convicted speeders of the imposition of an additional $200.00 fee
within 30 days after conviction on a speeding ticket 85 miles per hour or more on any road or highway
or speeding 75 miles per hour or more on any two-lane road or highway. These Georgia Driver
Services fees are in addition to court fines and fees. An attorney may be able to negotiate
a reduction in speed so that you are not subject to the $200.00 fee associated with Georgia's Super
Speeder ticket law.
