Aggressive Traffic Offense Attorney Defending Gordon County
Attorney Ralph M. Hinman offers extensive experience with traffic offenses. In certain situations, even a ticket can result in serious consequences. For example, if you are under 21, or if you are a commercial driver, your license or commercial driving privileges may be suspended for certain offenses which would have no effect on a regular license.
Serious traffic offenses include driving with a suspended license, leaving the scene of an accident (hit & run), attempting to elude an officer, aggressive driving, and vehicular homicide. But even if the alleged traffic offense is minor, the consequences can be serious.
If you are licensed by a state other than Georgia, and you are convicted of a traffic offense in Georgia, both Georgia and the licensing state may suspend. The licensing state’s suspension laws may be more harsh than Georgia’s. Florida, North Carolina and Virginia, for example, have suspension rules which are of greater application and consequence than those in Georgia.
If you are licensed in another state, e.g., Tennessee, and you are convicted of a traffic offense in Georgia, Georgia will report it to Tennessee. Almost all states report traffic convictions to the licensing state. Additionally, some states, such as Florida, “import” prior driving histories. Thus, if you move from Georgia to Florida, your Georgia history will follow you.
