What you Need to Know - Atlanta Ticket Fighters


Driving is a privilege, not a right, in Georgia.  Your ability to operate a vehicle is extremely important and traffic tickets can have a significant impact on that.  In Georgia, like most states, traffic violations count against your driving record.   In some cases, even a single violation can cause your license to be suspended.  The Georgia Department of Driver Services can suspend your license for any of the following reasons:

1.Homicide by vehicle.
2.A conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
3.Any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used.
4.Using a motor vehicle in fleeing or attempting to elude an officer.
5.Fraudulent or fictitious use of, or application for, a license.
6.Hit and run or leaving the scene of an accident.
7.Racing.
8.If you refuse to take a chemical test for intoxication, then your license will be suspended for 12 months.
9.Operating a motor vehicle with a revoked, canceled, or suspended registration in violation of Code Section 40-6-15.
10.Conviction for driving without insurance is a 60/90-day suspension.
11.If convicted for driving while license is suspended, revoked or canceled, your driver's license will be further suspended for six months.
12.If you fail to appear in court or respond to a citation, your license may be suspended indefinitely.
13.Your driver's license will be suspended if you are convicted of possession, distribution, manufacture, cultivation, sale or transfer of a controlled substance or marijuana.
14.The Department is authorized to suspend your license if its records or other evidence shows that you have accumulated 15 points within 24 months under the point system, including violations committed out of state.
Among other reasons, points are accumulated for the following:

Reckless Driving -  4 points 

Unlawful passing school bus - 6 points 

Improper passing on hill or curve 4 points 

Speeding   
15 mph but less than 19 mph  - 2 points
19 mph but less than 24 mph  - 3 points
24 mph but less than 34 mph  - 4 points
34 mph or more                       - 6 points

Disobedience of any traffic-control device or traffic officer - 3 points 

Possessing an open container of an alcoholic beverage while driving - 2 points 

Failure to adequately secure a load - 2 points

All other moving violations - 3 points
