Carrollton Traffic Violation Lawyer

Georgia Speeding Tickets

A terrible fight with a loved one or a chaotic schedule can cause people to drive too fast. Or maybe you were listening to a great song on the radio or got promoted at work. Some vehicles ride so smoothly it's easy to exceed the speed limit without being aware of it.

There are a wide variety of reasons for speeding, but none of those excuses are guaranteed to result in a warning instead of a violation.

When you get a traffic ticket, you need to contact Carrollton traffic violation attorney Robert Duffee at 770-884-6402 (toll free at 877-284-4979). This is a serious situation, and many people make the mistake of paying the ticket because they are too busy to appear in court. That is an admission of guilt that could result in higher insurance rates and/or suspension of your driver's license.

Drivers under the age of 21 in particular may be exposed to exceptionally harsh consequences, depending on the circumstances.

Traffic Violations

Driving too fast is not the only way to break Georgia driving laws. Speeding in a work zone, racing, improper passing of a school bus, reckless driving and running a stop light are just some of the many other violations that will result in points being assigned to your record. The point system is complicated and can significantly affect your driving privileges. You should not attempt to navigate this situation without the guidance of a knowledgeable attorney.

Georgia Speed Trap Law and Traffic Court

All state, county, municipal and campus law enforcement officers using a radar device are subject to the Georgia speed trap law. This law is very specific and you need an experienced lawyer who is aware of when and how to apply it because some jurisdictions and judges may disregard its restrictions. Hiring Duffee Law Firm to represent you in traffic court will save you time and may save you from dealing with increased insurance premiums and a possible license suspension.

Speeding Tickets for Commercial Drivers

Truck drivers are subject to an additional set of rules, so hiring a skilled lawyer who can fight your ticket is essential to avoiding a possible suspension of your commercial driver's license (CDL), which could lead to losing your job.
