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.

State of Georgia Move Over Violation
Georgia’s Move Over Law says motorists travelling in the lane adjacent to the shoulder must move-over one lane when emergency and utility vehicles are stopped on the side of the highway and operating in an official capacity. Vehicles included in the law include all first responders (law enforcement, fire, EMS), utility vehicles, DOT vehicles, HERO Units and wreckers tending to an accident. The law is meant to keep officers AND traffic violators safe from crashes with passing cars.
The Move Over Law was passed in the aftermath of growing numbers of police, emergency technicians and DOT workers being killed during routine traffic stops, crash responses and highway construction projects around the nation. Right now, more than thirty states have Move Over Laws on the books, with fines that range as high as a thousand dollars or more in some jurisdictions. The Move Over fine in Georgia can be up to $500.
Failure to obey the Move Over Law can lead to consequences far more serious than fines. According to FBI statistics, traffic crashes claim the lives of more police personnel than any other cause of death in the line of duty, including shootings. Reports show emergency vehicles of all types have been struck while parked beside Georgia highways, even while their emergency lights were flashing.
The Georgia Move Over Law requires drivers to move-over one lane when possible if an emergency vehicle with flashing lights is parked on the shoulder of the highway. And if traffic is too heavy to move-over safely, the law requires drivers to slow down below the posted speed limit instead AND to be prepared to stop.
