Atlanta Attorney for Racing on the Highway Charges
Call the Law Office of Matthew T. McNally for Defense
Engaging in a race with another driver is a serious offense under Georgia traffic law. These cases involve excessive speeding, and a driver may face up to 12 months imprisonment as well as fines of up to $1,000 if convicted. The extent of penalties may increase or decrease depending upon the circumstances of the incident, including whether the driver was involved in an accident, caused injury to another person or caused any property damage. Racing on a highway is most often charged as a misdemeanor. However, the particular case, the charges and the penalties may vary depending on the jurisdiction as well as what the prosecuting attorney tries to pursue.
