Many people get a ticket and "pay it online," or go to court and "get it over with" by pleading guilty, only to realize later that their insurance goes up, or their driver's license gets suspended. Under Georgia law, a person's license can be suspended for having too many points assessed on their driving record, and for various other traffic violations.
GA traffic law is complex and a person charged with a traffic offense should hire a GA Traffic lawyer to handle their traffic ticket in court. Attorney Robert Speer is very familiar with the various courts in Metro Atlanta and how to get traffic charges reduced or dismissed altogether.
