I was cited for 61 in a 35 while riding my motorcycle. The officer cited me for 40-6-180 which in GA is a 'too fast for conditions' violation. I called to get the fine amount and the automated system indicated that I owed $56.00. I also learned through some research that this citation does not carry points. Imagine my relief and luck.
However, when I went to the court to pay the fine I was told the fine was $165.00 and the citation was for speeding 40-6-181.
You can see my issue and I can guess that you can understand my level of anger.
Is there any grounds to take this to court and get them to honor the original citation? Or in GA is there a possibility to take defensive driving to either reduce or eliminate this from my driving record.
