March 4, 2019: I appeared with my client in the Milton municipal court. My client had been issued a speeding ticket for going 58 mph in a 40 mph zone.
Georgia code 40–6–181 is a prohibition against driving faster than the posted speed limit. Two points will be added to a drivers record if the driver is convicted of speeding 15 to 18 mph over the posted limit.
Following considerable negotiation with the prosecutor, I was able to get the court to agree to reduce my client’s speed to 14 mph over the limit, which is non-reportable to the Georgia Dept. of Drivers Services, if my client pays a $193 fine, and takes a defensive driving class.
We accepted this proposal, and my client’s case will be reset until May 3, 2019 for client’s completion of defensive driving class. Neither my client or I will need to return to court on that date, as client will submit the certificate of completion of driving class and pay this fine before May 3.
This is another very happy client of the Milton, Georgia speeding ticket defense attorney Scott Miller.
