The consequences of a speeding ticket or other traffic violation in Georgia can include significant fines, surcharges, and higher insurance rates. The state of Georgia also has a point system that assigns a certain number of points to different traffic violations. If you receive more than fifteen points in two years, you risk the suspension of your driver’s license.

The penalties for a speeding ticket greatly increase the more miles you were driving over the speed limit. The point levels increase, the fines go up, insurance premiums go up, or insurance companies cancel your policy. It may even result in the suspension or loss of your driver’s license.
If you are a professional truck driver, it is extremely critical that you keep your record clear of speeding tickets. The consequence of too many points on your record could result in the loss of your CDL and your job. If you are a commercially licensed driver who has been issued a speeding ticket, you need a lawyer with a strong track record of getting these citations dismissed and keeping clients’ records clean.

According to the North Carolina DMV, a driver convicted of going 15 mph over the limit of 55 mph loses will have their license suspended for 30 days. A second offense results in a 60 day suspension and a third conviction results in a suspension for 1 year.
