Georgia Super Speeder Law
Since January 1st, 2010 Georgia drivers and out of state motorists driving through Georgia became liable for new, higher penalties for speeding at above average miles per hour under a law known as the Georgia Super Speeder Law.
The new law or O.C.G.A. § 40-6-189, adds another $200 onto a speeding ticket for anyone caught speeding and driving at 75 MPH or above on a 2 lane highway or 85 MPH or above on any road in Georgia. The $200 will be added on to the fines a Georgia city or county imposes upon an offender that are already in place for speeding violations in Georgia. Once a traffic or speeding ticket fine has been paid, the driver receives a letter from the Georgia DDS advising that they now owe $200, payable within 120 days. If you do not pay the super speeder fine in that period of time, you could potentially have your driver’s license suspended.
