Traffic Offenses

Don't Give Up On A Traffic Ticket

Any traffic violation counts as points against your driver's license. Some traffic offenses are charged as misdemeanor crimes. From jail or license suspension to major fines and higher insurance rates, you need to know the consequences and you need a lawyer who can do something about it.

At James R. Dutton, Attorney at Law, based in Griffin, Georgia, we practice in the surrounding jurisdictions of Central Georgia, including the I-75 corridor of Henry, Spalding, Lamar, Butts and Monroe counties.

We handle traffic violations, including:

  • Reckless driving or racing
  • Aggressive driving (road rage)
  • Driving while license suspended or revoked
  • Driving without insurance
  • Hit-and-run (leaving the scene of an accident)
  • Drunk driving (DUI)
  • Vehicular assault/vehicular homicide
  • Speeding tickets
  • Unlawfully passing a school bus
  • Construction zone violations (double fines and points)
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Improper passing or lane violations
  • Trucking violations (DOT or GDOT regulations)

Special Concerns For CDLs And Young Drivers

Drivers under age 21 may be subject to automatic suspension for one serious traffic offense or any combination of four points in a 12-month period.

Drivers with commercial driver's licenses (CDLs) are under a different system that can lead to suspension of their CDL privileges, even if they were driving their personal vehicle when the ticket was issued. I will fight to protect your livelihood.

Nonresidents cited in Georgia often do not realize that a traffic citation can follow them back home. Our firm may be able to resolve your case here in Georgia to keep it off your driving record in your home state.
