What’s the Big Deal?
Why should I pay for an attorney in addition to possibly paying for fines?
Because we’ll save you money. While it costs more up front to hire a lawyer when you receive a traffic ticket in Georgia, you’ll save more over time if they are successful in avoiding the consequences to your driving history. In addition to your fine, your insurance rates could increase anywhere from $400 to $1000 per year, over the next three (3) to seven (7) years. This is anywhere from $1200 to $7000 in savings you might be leaving on the table.
Many drivers don’t realize the hidden costs that follow a traffic citation until it’s too late. Convictions can also cause your life insurance rates to climb. And yes—you will have that dreaded “record” next time you’re in court. You don’t need to take our word for it. Call your insurance company to ask what might happen to your rate if you’re convicted of a ticket (hypothetically, of course!).
With some offenses, depending on the jurisdiction your case is in, it just does not make good sense to hire a lawyer. While we cannot ethically offer guarantees, our experienced network of attorneys know when we can likely add value vs. when we’ll just cost you extra. For more information or immediate help on your specific case, call our team now at 404-310-9795.

2010 Georgia Code
TITLE 40 – MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC
CHAPTER 6 – UNIFORM RULES OF THE ROAD
ARTICLE 4 – RIGHT OF WAY
§ 40-6-72 – Stop signs and yield signs
O.C.G.A. 40-6-72 (2010)
40-6-72. Stop signs and yield signs
(a) Preferential right of way may be indicated by stop signs or yield signs as authorized in Code Section 32-6-50.
(b) Except when directed to proceed by a police officer, every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign shall stop at a clearly marked stop line or, if there is no stop line, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if there is no crosswalk, at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering it. After stopping, the driver shall yield the right of way to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard during the time when such driver is moving across or within the intersection or junction of roadways.
(c) The driver of a vehicle approaching a yield sign shall, in obedience to such sign, slow down to a speed reasonable for the existing conditions and, if required for safety to stop, shall stop at a clearly marked stop line or, if there is no stop line, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if there is no crosswalk, at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering it. After slowing or stopping, the driver shall yield the right of way to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard during the time such driver is moving across or within the intersection or junction of roadways. If such a driver is involved in a collision with a vehicle in the intersection after driving past a yield sign without stopping, such collision shall be deemed prima-facie evidence of his failure to yield the right of way.
