Is it worth fighting a traffic ticket?

In many cases, absolutely! But this is something you want to consult with a traffic lawyer about first because fighting some traffic tickets can take a lot of time and depending on the tickets, you may not wish to fight them.  However, most people believe you should simply pay the ticket and move on.  While you can certainly do that, you should at least understand that paying a ticket is an admission of guilt.

A traffic offense in Georgia is a criminal offense.  It makes sense then that knowing your rights can only help better prepare you in court if you decide that’s the route for you.  In the situation where you have other offenses on your record, adding a traffic offense could harm you and your ability to drive.

Understand also, that just paying the ticket can result in an increase in your auto insurance, points on your driver’s license and more.  You can read more here:
