Traffic and DUI Citations at Sparks Municipal Court

The Sparks Municipal Court handles cases for traffic violations, DUI charges, and other ordinance violations that occur in Sparks, Georgia. If you have been charged with a DUI or a traffic ticket, you should seek out legal assistance in dealing with your case. It may seem easier to simply pay the fine, but this is equal to a no-contest guilty plea. You may be able to get these charges dismissed or downgraded, but if you are not familiar with the paperwork and the law, you may not be able to do so. That is where the experienced team at the Kunes Law Office comes in. We will work with you to reduce or dismiss your charges so your driving record remains clean.

Sparks Municipal Court

If you wish to contest the traffic ticket you received in Sparks, you will need to visit the Sparks Municipal Court at 115 Colquitt Street. However, the court does give you the option to pay your fines online. Again, doing so is the same as pleading guilty. If you plead guilty to a traffic violation, it will go on your court record and can have a number of consequences. You may find it difficult to get a job that requires you to drive company vehicles. Your insurance premiums are likely to increase, especially if you have several speeding tickets or caused an accident. If you have a large number of tickets that you have pled guilty to, you may even have your license suspended. Having a lawyer on your side can help prevent this.

Super Speeder Tickets in Sparks

If you drive over 75 mph on a two-lane road or drive over 85 mph on any road, you may be classified as a super speeder. The state of Georgia created this special misdemeanor category in 2010 to punish those who excessively speed with a higher fine. In addition to the fine you would be given by the Sparks Municipal Court, the state will also fine you $200. If you are charged and plead guilty or no contest to a super speeder charge, you may find that you are classified as a reckless driver. This can result in worse consequences from your insurance company and even from your employer if you are a commercial driver or if driving for work is a part of your daily duties.

DUI Charges in Sparks

A DUI charge brings with it even more serious consequences, including losing your license and very hefty fines. It can even impact your employment, especially if you are considering a position that requires a commercial license. Defending yourself in a DUI case is very difficult, especially if you do not have a very close understanding of the law. You need an expert to help you defend yourself and get your charges reduced or dismissed. If you have been charged with a DUI, a super speeder violation, or any other traffic law, do not hesitate to reach out to the Kunes Law office for help.
