On Monday, September 24, I appeared with my client in Fulton State Court.
My client had been charged with a following too close accident.
A following to close accident is a rear end collision as defined by Georgia Code 40-6-49.
The GA code 40-6-49 states “that the driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon, and the conditions of the highway."
I had previously appeared with my client in the Atlanta Municipal Court to defend my client against this charge. However, I had this case bound over to the Fulton State Court in an attempt to obtain a better outcome for my client.
I am happy to report that, I got the following too close charge dismissed, and my client plead guilty to a basic rules violation and paid a fine of $100. The basic rules violation is not reported to the Georgia Department of driver services and there are no points added to his drivers record.
This is a big win for my client and it speaks to the wisdom of having a case bound over to a higher court.
My client is thrilled, and he is another very happy client of the Alpharetta, Georgia traffic ticket defense attorney Scott Miller.
