Top 3 Traffic Violation Lawyers

Traffic tickets are more than just fines. Traffic tickets in Georgia concerning moving violations carry with them points. Since people with a bad driving record are more likely to get into car accidents, these points can affect your insurance rates. Even after you pay the ticket fine, your insurance rate increase can last for several years. If you are a repeat traffic offender with 15 accumulated points within 2 years, your driving privileges will be revoked, putting you at risk for getting jail time if you drive on a suspended license. A traffic ticket can devistate your life if your job requires you to drive a Big-Rig, taxi, Uber, or other company vehicle. It's hard to believe but you could lose your job by getting a ticket on your way to work.

Dangerous moving violations such as reckless driving or running a red light are actually punishable by jail time and/or probation. Daniels & Taylor, P.C., can help you defend against an unwarranted traffic citation or get the charges reduced or dismissed. There are many technicalities and constitutional rights that are fundimental to our criminal justice system and a Traffic Lawyer can help you navigate the system to find facts to defend you from the State. Remember, a "defense" is not the same as an "excuse". It is not a valid defense to say you were speeding because you were "following the flow of traffic." Even if you don't have a vaild legal defense, often times plea negotiations can result in reduced fines or no points against your driving record.
