Traffic tickets are more than just small fines—they become a part of your permanent driving record and can have far-reaching consequences that are not always readily apparent.

Before you pay the ticket or consider defending yourself, take the time to call the Kunes Law Office at 229-382-4900. Our team of legal experts understands the minute details of all of Georgia’s traffic laws. We can often find errors that result in tickets being dismissed or charges being reduced.
Dooly Probate Court
Dooly County Probate Court is located at 104 S. Second Street in Vienna, Georgia. The court is charged with overseeing traffic citations, estate administration, vital records, marriage licenses, and weapons carry licenses. You can pay your traffic fines online, but doing so is considered a no-contest plea. This places the ticket on your driving record and adds points towards your 15-point total. When you have 15 or more points on your record, you will face more severe consequences. These can include higher fines or the suspension of your driver’s license.
You can appear in court to contest your speeding ticket, and we recommend that you do. Some tickets are written under assumptions that are not true, while others contain basic errors that can, if pointed out, result in the ticket being invalidated. It may also be possible to have your fines reduced. However, when you appear in court, you want to have a legal expert with you. Traffic laws are not as straightforward as they may seem, and there are often small errors on a ticket that you may not notice. That is why we are here.
Super Speeder Tickets in Dooly Probate Court
Georgia has a special classification for speeding citations for going over 75 miles per hour on a two-lane road or 85 miles per hour on any road. This super speeder law places these citations in a different misdemeanor classification and automatically adds a $200 fine on top of any other fine handed down by the city or county. This is a unique classification that many other states do not have. Because of this, some states such as Florida translate a super speeder ticket into a charge of reckless driving. This has more severe consequences than a simple speeding ticket.
Because the fine and the consequences are worse, you certainly want to work with a lawyer to challenge a super speeder ticket. The court can assign you a public defender, but this defender may not be as familiar with the super speeder statute as we are. This is why the Kunes Law Office is the right choice for defending you in Dooly Probate Court. We have experience in the following areas:
