Contrary to what many of us believe, reckless driving and aggressive driving are not the same. While both are quite serious in the eyes of Georgia law, an aggressive driving conviction results in the imposition of harsher penalties. Aggressive driving is defined as operating a vehicle with intent to “annoy, harass, molest, intimidate, injure or obstruct” another individual. On the contrary, reckless driving is ambiguously characterized by the law as any driving activity displaying disregard for others or their property. The vague definition of reckless driving is open to interpretation by the police officer, therefore increasing the likelihood of an arbitrary, groundless citation.
The phrase “aggressive driving” implies that the operator of the vehicle was acting with malicious intent. Often, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Speeding, unnecessary and excessive changing of lanes, and unlawful passing are examples of moving violations that can potentially be elevated to aggressive driving charges. While such violations can arguably reflect impatience, it’s unlikely that aggression was involved at all. Unfortunately, an aggressive driving conviction may result in:
When facing a potential aggressive driving conviction in Marietta, choosing to represent yourself in the courtroom may prove to be an unwise decision. Punishment may include the imposition of up to six points on your driver’s license. Should you already have an accumulation of points on your record, an increasing insurance premium will be the least of your concerns. Georgia law dictates that anyone who accrues 15 points or more within a period of two years is subject to license suspension. Therefore, appearing in court without legal counsel is quite risky. An experienced traffic attorney such as Diana Whipkey Young will provide a strong defense, fighting to downgrade the aggressive driving offense to a lesser charge, and in some instances, to get the charges dismissed altogether.
