    Default Can I Pay Without Getting Points for Improper Left Turn

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Georgia

    I have a NJ driver's license and I was driving in Atlanta, Georgia.
    Since I am not familiar with the roads, I've made improper left turn i didn't know that i wasn't suppose to do that and police stopped me. He told me that I wasn't supposed to make the left turn and asked if I live in NJ since I had a Jersey license. I told him I was visiting my parents and that I don't live in Atlanta. The police wasn't even nice enough to just give me a warning.

    I have never gotten a ticket before, so I am not sure what I should do.
    The cop told me I can pay the fine or go to court. I was nervous at the time to ask if I get points.

    Do I get points on my driver's license for this improper turn?
    What can I do to get rid of the points at court?
    If I just pay for the fines, the points will still be on my driver's license right?
    What options do I have? I'm quite clueless since this is my first time.

    If you haven't done so in five years prior, you can plead nolo in court for most traffic violations and while the infraction shows on your record, you will not be assigned points.
    Just mailing in the ticket (with the fine) is a guilty plea (you'll get points).
