Teen accused of violating traffic law? You need to take action

While juvenile offenses do differ from adult criminal ones, the pervasive myth that juvenile charges are simply not that serious is inherently wrong and can be hugely damaging to defendants in this type of situation. Teenagers charged with violating the law typically require the same careful guidance through the criminal process as their adult counterparts do. This is the case even with traffic violations, especially those that are serious in nature. 

Teens accused of racing while behind the wheel or of causing an accident and then attempting to leave the scene might understandably be worried about the future of their driving privileges. Georgia employs the point system for driver's licenses, meaning that certain traffic violations contribute points that can ultimately lead toward a suspension of driving privileges. For drivers who are younger than 18 years old, four points is sufficient for a suspension, which can be netted with a single reckless driving violation. 

However, when teenagers obtain drivers licenses and hit the road, they are often still in the throes of enormous leaps and bounds when it comes to brain development. This also tends to be the time in life that many teens have their first real opportunities to handle difficult decisions on their own. As such, it can be easy to understand that some teen drivers suffer from a significant amount of fear, panic and anxiety in the face of a supposed traffic violation.

Aside from the possible implications of a conviction for reckless driving or causing bodily harm with a motor vehicle, many teenage drivers rely on their own driving privileges to travel to school, various extracurricular activities and even work. We know that trying to handle these types of allegations can put an enormous amount of strain on Georgia families, and the longer the issue is dragged out the worse it can become. Our law firm put the needs of our clients and their families first, and ensure that they have the best guidance and representation possible throughout their criminal or juvenile court ordeal.
