Need Help with Your Speeding Ticket Defense in Pickens County?
Did you know you can get help preparing your speeding ticket defense? If you’re like many Georgia residents, you might think you’ve got no choice but to pay your speeding ticket. Not true! Speeding ticket defense is an option – if you know how to fight it in court.
Why fight your speeding ticket? One reason is that you may be able to avoid the short-term and long-term consequences of getting too many speeding tickets. Some of those consequences can be fairly severe. They include fines, points on your license, and possibly even having your license revoked.
Fines Associated with Speeding Tickets in Georgia
You might think that the only fine associated with your ticket is the amount listed on the ticket. For example, a $100 ticket should cost you no more than $100. However, Georgia’s Super Speeder Law and certain mandatory court costs may also apply to you. In addition to that, there are certain counties and cities in Georgia where fines may be doubled or tripled thanks to zero tolerance policies.
The good news is that you may be able to get your ticket costs drastically reduced. The bad news is that you don’t have a good chance of doing that on your own. Prosecutors are not generally very lenient when they are talking directly to defendants. That’s why you’ll feel better having an experienced defense attorney to negotiate on your behalf.
The Problem of Speeding Ticket Points
Another legal concern you definitely need to consider is points on your license. One speeding ticket here, another there, and you can rack up a lot of points quickly. One main problem with getting points on your license is that your auto insurance company gets that information. As a result, your insurance rates could grow astronomically high practically overnight, if you get too many speeding tickets. Chances are that you may not be able to afford to pay such high insurance rates.
At Risk for Having Your Drivers License Revoked?
Another consequence of getting too many speeding tickets, or too many points on your license for other offenses, is that your license could be taken away from you for some length of time. It might be months before you get it back, depending on how many speeding tickets you have accumulated. A suspended license could have a drastic impact on your daily life. You might have trouble finding rides to and from work, and your social life is sure to suffer as well.
