Georgia Traffic Lawyers Will Beat Your Speeding Tickets

Georgia Speeding Ticket Point System


Free Traffic Case Review | We can help you beat that speeding ticket. If you are like most people, you have probably had a speeding ticket in your lifetime. While one speeding ticket will not have much impact on your life, it can be troublesome if it becomes a regular occurrence.

In Georgia, speeding is classified as a moving violation. This means that you vehicle was moving at the time a traffic law was broken.

Police RadarWhat are the penalties for a speeding ticket in Georgia?

One of the penalties for a speeding ticket is that you will be ordered to pay fines. The fines may range from $140 to $330, depending on the severity of your offense.

Another penalty is that points will be added to your driver’s license. The more points on your license, the greater the consequences. For example, after you have accumulated 15 points within 24 months, the Georgia Department of Driver Services may suspend your driver’s license, even if some of the violations occurred out of state.

For drivers under the age of 21, your license may be suspended if you accumulate 4 or more points within 12 months.

Here are the points for each driving offense:

Speed Over the Legal Limit

Points

   

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 higher

6 points


Tickets for speeds less than 14 mph over the speed limit will not result in points on your driver’s license, but may affect you if you have a Commercial Driver’s License.

In addition to the loss of your driver’s license, your automobile insurance premiums will also skyrocket if you get enough points on your license.

It may be tempting to just plead guilty to a speeding ticket. However, as you can see, the consequences will affect many parts of your life, from your wallet to your driving privileges.
