Have you ever driven above the speed limit on the roadways in Georgia or on the Georgia interstate? Whether you were traveling to work or driving into the city for the weekend, the chances are likely that you have driven above the posted speed limit. However, drivers need to be aware of the Georgia Super Speeder Law that went into effect on January 1, 2010. A citation for a super speeder violation impacts your driving record, points, insurance premiums, and is very costly. The Georgia Super Speeder Law classifies a super speeder as a motor vehicle operator who has been convicted of driving 85 mph or more on any road or 75 mph or more on any two-lane road in the state.

Alpharetta traffic attorney explains Georgia Super Speeder Law and consequences:
  • Super speeding is considered excessive speeding, which is categorized as reckless driving in Georgia
  • Reckless driving is a criminal misdemeanor
  • $200 fine is imposed on drivers cited for super speeding
  • The fine is in addition to the standard citation fee
  • Four points are added on to your driver’s license
  • Increase in insurance premiums or cancellation of insurance coverage

If you have been designated as a Georgia Super Speeder, you will receive a notice regarding the extra $200 fine; you will be given 120 days to pay this fine. If you do not pay the fine, your license will be suspended.

It is also important to note that a criminal misdemeanor will show up on any background check performed by a potential employer. This is why it is particularly important to contact an experienced traffic attorney in Alpharetta if you have been issued a Georgia Super Speeder ticket.

Paying the fine is an admission of guilt in the Georgia court system, and you will face the penalties as if you were convicted of the offense.
