What determines if my citation is payable or whether I must appear in court?
Whether a citation is payable or requires a court appearance is determined by the judges of the Coweta County State Court. In creating what is known as the Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB), the judges drafted and signed an order setting out what offenses were to be payable without a court appearance.
***You must come to court if you are under 21 and charged with speeding violation of 24 MPH or more over the posted speed limit.***
NOTICE AND PROCEDURE TO QUALIFY AS A FIRST TIME SPEEDING OFFENDER

Any prior speeding offense, even in another state, that resulted in a final disposition of:
- entry of bond forfeiture,

- a plea of nolo contendere, or
- finding of guilty/conviction
disqualifies the person as a first offender.
Any individual eligible for treatment as a First Time Speeding Offender under O.C.G.A. § 40-6-1, must submit a sworn affidavit to the Court showing that the pending speeding citation is their first ever speeding offense. This First Time Speeding affidavit will be necessary regardless of the manner of payment (mail, internet or personal appearance) chosen by the accused. It is a violation of the law in Georgia to submit a false affidavit in a Court of law.
