Have you recently been charged with aggressive driving in Atlanta? Don’t go to court without aggressive driving attorney Lindsay Reese at your side!
According to O.C.G.A. §40-6-397(a) A person commits the offense of aggressive driving when he or she operates any motor vehicle with the intent to annoy, harass, molest, intimidate, injure, or obstruct another person, including without limitation violating Code Section 40-6-42, 40-6-48, 40-6-49, 40-6-123, 40-6-184, 40-6-312, or 40-6-390 with such intent.
Such a vague statute can lend itself to interpretation. Aggressive driving is often based upon the statement of the alleged victim or the police officer’s perception. A conviction for aggressive driving can result in a substantial fine, 6 points on your license, and jail time in some cases. Aggressive driving can also be difficult for a prosecutor to prove since he or she must prove the driver’s intent.
