Most of the time, that sinking feeling that comes from seeing blue lights in your rear-view mirror is only the start of your problems. The officer hands over a traffic ticket and leaves it up to you to figure it out from there. The citation shows a court date. Do you have to go? Can you pay over the phone? What if I disagree with the officer? How many points do I get? What do those points even mean? What about my insurance rates? The questions add up quickly when it comes to traffic tickets. Answers, however, are harder to find.

Traffic Ticket Myths Debunked
Traffic laws vary drastically among states. However, your Google search probably does very little to differentiate which laws apply to your ticket. Even if you do find Georgia law, it is probably outdated or inapplicable to your case. Why? Georgia’s legislators change the traffic laws almost every year. The information available online usually leaves out important information that you never knew to ask. For example, pleading “no contest” (nolo contendere) is usually not the best choice to avoid points on your license. Paying the fine does not just make the citation go away. When you pay by phone, you are entering a guilty plea that will stay on your driving history.
Even the most basic traffic ticket can become a big deal if you live out of state. Your options are limited significantly simply by the fact that it may cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars to return to Georgia to deal with your ticket. Furthermore, your home state will likely find out about the ticket and it could affect your license there. The attorneys at Tyler Moore Law know how to save you time and money with your Georgia traffic citation. In most cases, they can handle the ticket without you ever having to return to Georgia.
