Most citations can be paid prior to the court date, indicated near the bottom of the citation without having to appear in court. Failure to appear in court or failure to pay a fine before the court date will result in a license suspension and/or a warrant being issued for the violator’s arrest.
Failure to Appear - Effective July 1, 2017, per Georgia Senate Bill 176, the Defendant will have 30 days from missed court date to dispose of citation. If a defendant’s citation is not disposed of within 30 days from missed court date, a bench warrant and/or license suspension will be issued. A contempt fee of $100 will be assessed.
For information concerning mandatory court appearances or the amount of your fine, call 770-719-4277 during normal business hours Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm.
