You need to be sure to retain an attorney ASAP and/or appear (if necessary) at the court date and contest the ticket. If you just pay the ticket, it will be considered a guilty plea and you will receive all related points on your driving record.

You may file an appeal from General Sessions Court to Circuit Court as long as the appeal is filed within ten (10) days of the entry of the judgment or disposition of the case.
