Question: Should I complete a defensive driving course before my court date for 88/70 speeding ticket in Cook County, GA. I currently have “0” points.

Answer: I regularly advise Clients to take a Defensive Driving course as a Pro Active measure to be used in negotiations with the State. In your case, Cook Co. is a tough place to get a Super Speeder Citation. The Solicitor there takes a dim view of Super Speeder violations and negotiating a reduction in speed can be difficult without an experienced attorney. After practicing law in South Georgia for nearly 20 years, I would advise you to hire an experienced attorney to attempt to negotiate a resolution that would reduce the speed enough so that the ticket would not go on your driving history and would not be a Super Speeder violation.

Good Luck!!!
