Georgia drivers may need refresher to avoid traffic violations

Georgia residents couldn't be happier that things are opening back up just in time for summer to arrive. Over the past few months, drivers have gotten used to less traffic on the roads because many people only ventured out for essentials. Once again, there is plenty to see and do, and the streets are full of people anxious to get out of the house and have some fun. Drivers may want to refresh themselves on some safety tips to avoid traffic violations

One of the trickiest patterns to navigate can be a four-way stop at an intersection. When traffic is coming from four directions with a stop sign at each lane, it can be tricky to know whose turn it is. If a driver gets confused and goes at the wrong time, a serious accident or a traffic ticket can result. 

As a general rule of thumb, whichever driver arrived at his or her designated stop sign goes first. If two cars stop at about the same time, the driver to the right gets to go first. Even if a driver is sure it is his or her turn to proceed, he or she should wait if it looks like another driver is going out of turn. This may seem annoying, but patience can keep everyone safe on the road. 

If a driver is issued a ticket in Georgia, he or she should not let it ruin the day. A driver has the option to dispute traffic violations in court. A friendly local attorney can help a driver explain the situation to the court and work toward a favorable outcome.
