State law authorizes municipal courts to hear violations of state and local traffic laws that occur within the city limits. State traffic offenses are misdemeanors that, in some cases, carry penalties of up to one year in prison and a $1,000 fine (O.C.G.A. § 17-10-3(a)(1)). In these cases, the law enforcement or code enforcement officer who observed and documented the offense is the city’s main witness. In addition to traditional fines, the court has the power to order abatement of a nuisance, provided that the city can prove its case.
