In Georgia- a traffic offense is considered a crime. The most common type of crime in Georgia is a traffic offense. A majority of traffic offenses are misdemeanors. Common examples of misdemeanor traffic offenses are: speeding, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane (weaving), or even not wearing a seatbelt.
Other traffic offenses can be a felony on their own. If a person who has been declared a Habitual Violator gets caught driving a vehicle, they will be charged as a Habitual Violator and could face up to 5 years in prison.
Some traffic offenses can be the basis for a felony charge. If a person is killed in a traffic accident and the driver is charged with Reckless Driving or DUI (drugs or alcohol), they could also be charged with Felony Homicide by Vehicle!
