While most of us drive above the speed limit from time to time, particularly on the Georgia interstate, getting caught by the police can lead to a number of issues. This is especially true if you are ticketed for speeding, or another moving violation, on multiple occasions. The Georgia Department of Driver Services tracks drivers through the use of a point system. If you accumulate enough points, your license could be suspended, canceled or revoked. This is why it is especially important to contact an Alpharetta speeding ticket lawyer if you get a speeding ticket.

In Georgia the points per speeding violation include:
 
  • 15-19 MPH above the speed limit: 2 points
  • 19-24 MPH above the speed limit: 3 points
  • 24-34 MPH above the speed limit: 4 points
  • 34 or more MPH above the speed limit: 6 points

Single violations resulting in a speeding ticket for driving less than 14 MPH above the speed limit do not add points to your license.

If you accumulate 15 or more points within a two-year period, your Georgia license can be suspended—even if some of the violations occurred while you were out of state. Additionally, for drivers under the age of 21, their license can be suspended after being convicted of one four-point offense. The points accumulated through tickets are in addition to the fines imposed for speeding, which can cost upwards of $325, and the increased costs of your insurance premiums.

If you have been ticketed for a violation other than speeding, contact a traffic ticket attorney in Alpharetta for information on the number of points earned on your license for each offense. Remember that these points are added to any points you have acquired through speeding tickets; the Georgia Department of Driver Services looks at the total number of points when determining whether your license should be suspended, revoked or canceled.
