Traffic tickets for those under 21 years of age

When a minor or someone under the age of twenty-one receives a traffic ticket, special rules apply.  As a parent, you may now be searching diligently for an attorney or information that may help your child if he or she has received a traffic ticket.  If so, please see a special article written by our very own Attorney Mark Hill, regarding what you should and should not do, as well as what you can and cannot do, for your child and their traffic ticket.  You can access the article by clicking here: "A Message for Parents."

Points Chart

Here are some examples of how many points a conviction of a traffic offense carries.  Too many points could potentially affect your license and insurance rate.

  • Too fast for conditions: 0 points

    Violation of child safety restraint requirements, first offense: 1 point

    Violation of child safety restraint requirements, second or subsequent offense: 2 points

    Exceeding the speed limit by more than 14 miles per hour but less than 19 miles per hour: 2 points

    Possessing an open container of an alcoholic beverage while driving: 2 points

    Disobedience of any traffic-control device or traffic officer: 3 points

    Exceeding the speed limit by 19 miles per hour or more but less than 24 miles per hour: 3 points

    All other moving traffic violations which are not speed limit violations: 3 points

    Exceeding the speed limit by 24 miles per hour or more but less than 34 miles per hour: 4 points

    Reckless driving: 4 points

    Improper passing on a hill or a curve: 4 points

    Aggressive driving: 6 points

    Unlawful passing of a school bus: 6 points

    Exceeding the speed limit by 34 miles per hour or more: 6 points 

The Commissioner can suspend your license for the accumulation of 15 or more points in any consecutive 24 month period, measured from the dates of previous arrests from which conviction obtained to date of most current arrest for which conviction obtained.  A "no lo contendere" plea is considered a conviction for some of these purposes.

Traffic Ticket Lawyers in Gwinnett County and surrounding areas

No case too big or too small

Our Lawrenceville traffic ticket lawyers understand that even the smallest traffic violation can have disastrous consequences.  Some traffic violations are reported to the Department of Driver Services and ultimately your insurance company, potentially causing your premiums to skyrocket.  Further, some traffic violations result in points on your license, which can ultimately conclude in suspension of your driver's license.  If you are under 21 at the time the ticket is issued, even speeding tickets and any offense assigned 4 points can result in the loss of your license.

Don't let this happen to you!  The attorneys of Chambers, Hill & Quinde are well-versed in traffic laws and will discuss with you the possible consequences of your traffic ticket.  Our goal is to amend your traffic ticket to one that will reduce or eradicate points on your license and/or amend the charge to one that is not reportable.
