Under 21 Traffic Tickets

Gwinnett County Under 21 Traffic Ticket Attorney

Fighting for the Best Possible Outcome in Traffic Court

Are you or someone you know an under 21-year-old driver? A license suspension or other penalty could result from making mistake. All drivers, no matter what age, can make errors when driving in today’s traffic, especially in the high-density traffic areas around Georgia. In some cases, law enforcement can upgrade or add charges such as Racing or Reckless Driving to a moving violation.

In Georgia, under 21-year-old drivers can have their license suspended much easier than drivers over 21 years old. This is due to mandatory suspensions for variety of moving violation or point accumulation. If a driver is under 18 years old, 4 points in a 12-month period will lead to a suspension.

Traffic Offenses in Gwinnett County

Traffic tickets can involve all kinds of violations of both traffic and criminal law in Georgia. Convictions to the traffic charge can cause extreme hardship. They can result in points and convictions added to your driving record. In Georgia, these points range from two to six points, depending on the type of violation. Points remain on your record for two years. Accumulating 15 or more points within a two-year period will lead to a license suspension. Examples of points include six points for aggressive driving, four points for reckless driving, and three points for failing to obey a traffic control device.

Paying your traffic ticket may seem like the least stressful way to proceed. However, it could result in the loss of your driving privilege, increased insurance premiums, or you could lose your job.

Criminal Traffic Charges

Some traffic violations comprise criminal charges, such as aggressive driving and reckless driving which are misdemeanors. Reckless driving is a common traffic offense which is defined as driving in reckless regard for the safety of others. It is punishable by up to a year in jail and/or fines of up to $1,000. If you are under 21, you will lose your license for this offense.

Other misdemeanor traffic offenses, include fleeing and eluding law enforcement, driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance, driving while under the influence or impaired by alcohol and/or drugs, and hit and run (or leaving the scene of an accident). You will also face license suspensions when convicted of these charges as well as potential jail time and/or fines.
