ATLANTA, GA, January 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta traffic attorney, Sam McRae, talks about the best ways to handle receiving an aggressive driving ticket. This charge is fairly recent and offers a lot of gray area that is often misconstrued by law enforcement personnel and drivers. In fact, Georgia is one of the only fourteen states to have this charge on the books, beginning in 2010.
Keep Calm and Be Polite
The legal definition of aggressive driving in brief is the "intent to annoy, harass, molest, intimidate, injure or obstruct another person while....overtaking or passing another vehicle, violating traffic lane markings, violating signal, lane change, impeding traffic flows, etc."
The language of the law is open to interpretation, particularly surrounding the area of intent. This is where many drivers often become angry and upset, and in many cases rightfully so.
Although you may not have intended to cause one of the aforementioned actions, someone else on the road may have thought otherwise, including the police officer who has issued the citation. Furthermore, since this charge is classified as an aggravated misdemeanor, which will establish and/or remain on your criminal record, the need to hire an Atlanta traffic ticket lawyer is crucial.
According to Sam McRae, Attorney at Sam McRae Law, "Regardless of the situation, the best thing you can do is remain calm. You do not want to give the officer any more reason to believe you are acting in an aggressive manner. Whether or not you are at fault, accept the charge and contact an attorney as soon as possible. The more detail you provide about the situation, the better chances you have of getting the charge reduced."
