What Violations Can Get You a Traffic Ticket in DeKalb County?

A  is a notice that drivers receive from police officers following a traffic violation. It includes:

  • Violated offenses,
  • Offense code numbers,
  • A summons to appear in court (if applicable), and
  • Payment options.

These are some of the most common types of traffic tickets in Georgia.

Speeding Tickets/ GA Super Speeder TicketsGeorgia defines a 'super speeder' as someone who's "convicted of speeding at 75-or-more on any two-lane roads…OR convicted of speeding at 85-and-over anywhere in Georgia." A $200 fee is added to any local DeKalb County fees you're subjected to.
Driving Without InsurancePenalties for driving without insurance vary by how many offenses you have, with higher fines in second or more incidents. Georgia requires you to show proof of insurance or new insurance within 30 days to avoid suspension.
Red Light and Stop Sign TicketsRed light and stop sign tickets are considered misdemeanors in Georgia. This means maximum fines can get as high as $1,200 and, as a misdemeanor, can also lead to up to a year in jail time (but rarely does). It's also worth noting that Georgia recognizes traffic cameras as legal, so a cop does not need to pull you over to receive a ticket in DeKalb County.
DUI (Driving Under the Influence)Driving under the influence, punishments have grown in importance all over the U.S., but Georgia, in particular, has cracked down in recent years. The minimum consequence of a DUI in Georgia is jail time for 24 hours and at least $300. Moreover, if you don't file an appeal within 30 days, you will also receive a year's suspension of your driver's license.
Cell Phone TicketsAnother moving violation Georgia is getting more serious about in recent years is driving while on your mobile. According to the Hands-Free Georgia Act in 2018, a driver cannot have their phone or a similar device anywhere on them or even touch them while operating a motor vehicle.

Why Is It Better to Dismiss or Dispute a DeKalb County Traffic Ticket Rather Than Just Pay It?

Your driving record affects several different aspects of your life — often much more than you'd think. Although just paying the fine to get it over with can ease the burden and stress of fighting the fine, there are a few things to consider. 

For instance, paying that fine means you're admitting you were in the wrong and committed that offense. The problem here is:

  • Your insurance rates will increase — this can be by a substantial amount if the offense is serious enough (i.e., driving without a license or DUI).
  • Points will be added to your license — if you accumulate enough points in two years, you risk your license getting suspended. The amount varies from state to state. In Georgia, you will need 15 points in 24 months to get your license suspended.

How to Dispute DeKalb County Traffic Tickets by Yourself

First and foremost, the good news is you can fight traffic tickets without a lawyer — at least with basic civil infraction tickets. This includes cases where you were speeding, made an illegal turn, or ran a red light/stop sign. However, DUIs and accidents should have an attorney present.

The DeKalb County State Court - Division B reports that — with the court's approval — you can now resolve eligible traffic violations when you show proof that the issue is resolved (showing proof of insurance, for instance). This can come in the form of a full dismissal or a reduced fine.

To request a dismissal or dispute a DeKalb County traffic ticket, you can do one of the following:

  1. Fight the ticket in court
  2. Request a 'trial by mail,' which entails disputing the ticket via a written statement and sending it to the court to be evaluated by the judge.

Note the location differs by whether you have a court case. If you have to go to a court case to dispute your ticket, you'll go to 556 N. McDonough Street, Decatur, Georgia. If you don't have to go to court, you'll go to the Camp Circle Courthouse Complex at 3630 Camp Circle, Decatur, GA.

Fortunately, you can skip both methods by using DoNotPay on your laptop or mobile phone.
