No matter how careful you are when driving, it's still possible to be pulled over by a local law enforcement officer or state trooper in Georgia. There are so many traffic laws on the books that you are bound to break one eventually, even if you didn't do so intentionally. Here are some tips for fighting a traffic ticket.
Every summer, Georgia law enforcement agencies step up their efforts to arrest drunk and drugged drivers. It's an admirable idea; between Memorial Day and Labor Day, fatal car wrecks involving teenagers increase as much as 15 percent - and many of these accidents result from DUI. Unfortunately, the increase in arrests also means there's a higher incidence of false or wrongful arrests. And those facing charges are often unsure how to assert their rights.
While our instincts and upbringing tell us to trust the police, it is an unfortunate fact that there are some police officers who not only fail to uphold the law, but actually break it by committing perjury in court.
Whether you've thought about it or not, your driver's license is extremely important. It enables independent travel and typically ensures your ability to get to work each day. Losing this privilege, as you can imagine, could significantly impact your life in a negative manner.
