Receiving a traffic ticket in Worth County will require you to appear in Worth County State Court. This court has jurisdiction over unincorporated areas in the county that do not have their own municipal courts. While you do not have to appear if you have received a traffic violation, you should always take the opportunity to have your day in court. Paying your ticket without appearing before a judge automatically results in a no contest verdict. This means you accept the charges and admit to violating the law. You not only have to pay the fines as outlined on your ticket, but the ticket also goes on your driving record. If you have a number of tickets already on your record, you may find your driver’s license is in danger of being suspended.
Worth County State Court
The Worth County State Court is located at 201 N. Main Street in Sylvester, Georgia. If you are charged with a traffic ticket, you have the option to appear in court. This is your right, and you should always take it if you feel as though you do not deserve the ticket. You also have the right to an attorney. Again, this is a right you should make use of. Appearing in court without an attorney puts you at a distinct advantage. While you can ask the court for the services of a public defender, you do need to know that these lawyers are often overbooked. They may not have the time to properly research or prepare for your case.

We have spent years studying Georgia’s traffic laws, including the Super Speeder statutes, and are prepared to help you win your case. In the event that we cannot get your charges fully dismissed, we will work with the court to have your charges downgraded to a lesser charge.
Why Fight a Speeding Violation in Worth County State Court?
There are many reasons why you should not simply pay your traffic ticket and accept the outcome. In Georgia, when you receive a traffic ticket and plead no contest or are found guilty, your driving record is hit with a number of points. The more serious the violation, the more points are placed on your record. If you reach 15 points, the penalties increase. Your driver’s license may be suspended, for example. You are also likely to find that your auto insurance premiums increase substantially. In fact, just one traffic violation on your record may be enough for your insurance company to deny you their safe driving discount.
