Traffic Defense Attorney in Gwinnett CountyIn Georgia, violations of traffic law account for more criminal offenses than any other type of crime. It is a common misconception that traffic offenses are not serious and, therefore, do not require the help of a lawyer. But anything that can result in a criminal record is serious. Don’t let a minor traffic offense ruin your life. An experienced GA traffic ticket attorney can help you determine how to proceed.

Common Traffic Offenses in Georgia

Any type of traffic offense can lead to criminal penalties. At the Law Office of Adam D. Brown, LLC, the most common traffic offenses we handle include:

Speeding & Super Speeder Tickets

In GA, speeding is generally a misdemeanor offense and is punishable by up to 12 months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Depending on how fast you were driving, the offense can also lead to the suspension of your driver’s license.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving is typically a misdemeanor criminal offense, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and fines of up to $1,000. Do not make the mistake of trying to deal with a reckless driving charge without the help of an experienced GA traffic offense attorney.

Hit and Run

If nobody was injured or killed in the hit and run accident, the driver will likely face a misdemeanor charge, punishable by jail time and fines of up to $1,000. If, however, someone was seriously injured or killed, the hit and run will be charged as a felony.

Suspended License & Driving Without a License

If convicted of driving without a license, it is treated as if you were driving on a suspended license. This means that for a first offense you will face at least 2 days in jail plus the remainder of 12 months on probation, a minimum fine of $500.00, and a 6-month “hard” suspension of your driving privileges. A second or third conviction within a 5-year span is considered a “high and aggravated” misdemeanor and will increase the minimum punishment to 10 days in jail, and a minimum $1,000.00 fine. A fourth conviction is a felony, punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison, and a fine of $2,500.00 to $5,000.00. An experienced Georgia traffic attorney will be able to help you avoid the hefty penalties.

DUI

First-offense DUIs carry a penalty of up to 12 months in jail, fines of up to $1,000, and a 12-month license suspension. Penalties get more serious with second and subsequent offenses.

Vehicular Homicide First Degree

If death is caused after a hit and run, it is First Degree Vehicular Homicide and is punishable by 3-15 years in prison. Other traffic offenses + fatality that would result in a First Degree Vehicular Homicide charge are: overtaking and passing a school bus; reckless driving; DUI; fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, or hit and run.

Vehicular Homicide Second Degree

All other deaths resulting from misdemeanor traffic offenses (predicate offense) may be prosecuted as Vehicular Homicide in the Second Degree. Second Degree Vehicular Homicide is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail, and a $1,000.00 fine.
