Under Georgia traffic law, you can be cited for a red light ticket if you fail to come to a complete stop at a traffic signal. This applies even in situations when you are turning right on a red light. You can also be ticketed for a red light violation if you drive through a yellow light but fail to make it entirely through the intersection before the yellow light turns red.
How Much Is a Ticket for Running a Red Light in Georgia?
Running a red light is a violation that may result in a $70 fine if taken by a camera with no previous points on your license, $158 if stopped with no previous points, up to $1k with 3 points on your license. Running a red light will add 3 points to your license increasing your insurance rates.
If you are in danger of a license suspension due to too many points already on your record, it is vital that you fight the citation to preserve your driving privileges. That can be done with the skilled legal representation of an attorney who is well-versed in handling traffic offenses in the local courts.
