Traffic tickets do not usually go away in Georgia although there's a statute of limitations which means that the courts have 2 to 4 years from the date of the traffic ticket to try you in court.

However the traffic ticket never really goes away and you can still have a warrant for failure to pay or show up in court.

In the state of Georgia, the statute of limitations for traffic tickets is four years from the date of the offense.

This means that a driver must either pay the ticket or dispute it within four years from the date of the violation.

After you pay the fine, the court will forward notice of the conviction to the Georgia Department of Driver Services.

Any points associated with your citation shall be placed on your driving record and the case will be closed.

Major traffic violation offenses in Georgia include driving recklessly or impaired, or seriously injuring or killing someone while driving recklessly or impaired.

They also include fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer in a vehicle, or driving aggressively.
