Points Violations And Serious Traffic Violations

Outside of DUI violations, Georgia statutes detail numerous serious traffic violations that will result in the suspension of a driver's license, including:

  • Fraudulent use of a driver's license
  • Racing
  • Fleeing or attempting to elude an officer using a motor vehicle
  • Hit-and-run, or leaving the scene of an accident
  • Homicide by vehicle
  • Using a motor vehicle in the commission of a felony

Additionally, the accumulation of points can lead to a license suspension. Drivers under 21 who are convicted of a violation of 4 points or more will receive a license suspension for at least six months. For individuals under 18, the accumulation of 4 or more points within a 12-month period will receive a license suspension for at least six months.

  • Violations worth 6 points: Aggressive driving, unlawful passing of a school bus, or speeding by 34 miles per hour or more.
  • Violations worth 4 points: Reckless driving, improper passing on a hill or curve, and speeding by 24 miles per hour but less than 34 miles per hour.
  • Violations worth 2 points can include possessing an open container of an alcoholic beverage and failure to secure a load that results in an accident.

It is crucial to contact an attorney who can handle teen traffic offenses. These violations can lead to serious consequences if not addressed immediately. Before you pay a ticket, call an attorney.
