    Answered . Nolo is an option in these cases if you haven't already used it in the previous 5 years. However, the judge does not have to accept it. As to whether you should plead nolo (or whether there are other options to resolve this case without a plea or formal sentence), you should retain counsel. That question is too specific for this general information website.

    Answered . Nolo is only useful for keeping points off of your license (in this case 3 points), and/or if the other driver is trying to sue you. Your best bet iss to ask the prosecutor to reduce your violation to OCGA 40-6-180 "Too Fast for Conditions" so the charge will not go on your driving history.
