Aggressive and Reckless Driving Violations

A white car that is on the side of the road.

Georgia takes Reckless driving serious, and Aggressive driving even more seriously. While this may save lives around the state, not every driver charged with reckless driving was driving recklessly, and not every driver charged with aggressive driving intended to be aggressive. Let an experienced and local Northeast Georgia Lawyer help you explore your options.

If you are facing charges in Northeast Georgia for aggressive or reckless driving, it is important to consult with a lawyer for representation due to the serious nature of this type of misdemeanor charge.

In Georgia, driving any vehicle and recklessly disregarding the safety of a person or any property can have grave consequences.  This means you do not necessarily have to have an accident to be cited for reckless driving.  Extreme speeding, weaving on the road, or other types of driving that may lead to accidents, often result in a reckless driving charge as well.  Aside from potential accidents, Reckless Driving can cost you up to $1,000.00, up to 12 months in prison, time on probation, or all of the above.  A Reckless Driving citation will also result in 4 violation points on your driving record, which will likely increase your insurance costs.  Also, for drivers under age 21, this violation alone can mean an automatic license suspension.

Aggressive driving is an even more serious offense in Georgia than Reckless driving.  In fact, driving recklessly actually becomes Aggressive Driving when it is done intending to annoy, harass, molest, intimidate, injure, or obstruct another person.  But that is not the only way to get cited for Aggressive Driving.  Any of those intents combined with any number of violations can become Aggressive Driving, including:

-        overtaking and passing another vehicle,

-        violating traffic lane markings,

-        following too closely,

-        violating signal, lane change, slowing or stopping laws, or

-        impeding traffic flows.
