Take Your Ticket Seriously
Traffic tickets are more than just fines. Traffic tickets and moving violations in Georgia also come with points that are placed on your license. 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 two years, your driving privileges will be revoked. A traffic ticket can devastate your life if your job requires you to drive a truck, taxi, Uber, or another company vehicle. It's hard to believe, but you could lose your job by getting a ticket on your way to work.
Defense Strategies for Traffic Tickets
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 valid legal defense, plea negotiations can often result in reduced fines or no points on your driving record.

The points to be assessed for each offense are outlined below:
- Aggressive driving: 6 points
