Traffic Violations

Traffic tickets are more than just fines. Traffic tickets in Georgia concerning moving violations carry with them points. These points can affect your insurance rates, your driving privileges and even your job. Daniels & Taylor, P.C., can help you defend against an unwarranted traffic citation or get the charges reduced or dismissed. Often plea negotiations can result in reduced fines or no points against your driving record.
