Aggressive Driving

Aggressive driving is a criminal offense which is charged as a misdemeanor in Georgia. Aggressive Driving is charged when a person operates any motor vehicle with the intent to annoy, harass, molest, intimidate, injure, or obstruct another person. 

​A conviction for this serious traffic offense may result in jail time, fines, community service and other penalties. Additionally, an aggressive driving conviction will result in 6 points on a person’s driving record. Accumulating enough points on one’s driving record will result in driver’s license suspension as well as increased insurance premiums.

​Working with an experienced traffic law attorney is a wise choice if you have been accused of aggressive driving. A skilled defense lawyer can help you avoid a conviction and therefore can end up saving you hundreds or possibly thousands of dollars or more on the increased insurance costs that you may have otherwise experienced had you accumulated points on your driving record. Not only that, a lawyer can help you avoid spending time in jail and paying heavy fines.

An aggressive driving citation will require a mandatory court appearance on the part of the defendant. This is because aggressive driving is a serious misdemeanor offense, not an infraction (such as a simple traffic ticket) which can be paid and then forgotten about. You will face real criminal penalties if you are found guilty of aggressive driving, and as such you should not hesitate or delay in consulting a defense lawyer as soon as possible.

The relevant law is O.C.G.A. §40-6-397. This law provides


§40-6-397. Aggressive driving; penalty


(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.


(b) Any person convicted of aggressive driving shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature.
