What Is a Super Speeder?
Georgia law defines a super speeder as a person who is convicted of driving at specific speeds above what was posted.
You are deemed a super speeder if you are convicted of:
- 75 mph on a two-lane road
- Above 85 mph on any road or highway
How Much Does a Super Speeder Ticket Cost in Georgia?
If an officer pulls you over and believes you were driving at either of the speeds listed above, they will issue a speeding ticket. If you are convicted for traveling equal to or faster than the super speeder threshold, the Department of Driver Services (DDS) will classify you as a super speeder. After you've been given the designation, you will be subject to a $200 fine by the State of Georgia, which is on top of the local court fine.
Failure to pay the $200 super speeder fine by the deadline will result in a suspension of your driver's license. To get your driving privileges reinstated, you would have to pay an additional $50 fee.
How Does the Super Speeder Law Apply to Out-of-State-Drivers?
Whether or not you are from Georgia, you must still abide by the speed limit. If you are from another state, and you are accused of driving 75 mph on a two-lane road or over 85 mph on any road, you are subject to the same penalties as an in-state driver. That means if you are convicted of super speeding, you must pay the additional $200 fee to the State of Georgia.
If you, as an out-of-state driver, do not pay the super speeder fee, your non-resident driving privileges will be suspended in Georgia. Additionally, the DDS will send the speeding conviction information to your home state, which could also take action by suspending your driver's license.
How Many Points Is a Super Speeder Ticket?
In Georgia, when you are convicted of speeding, points will be assessed to your driving record. The amount of points depends on how fast you were going. Receiving a classification as a super speeder will not result in additional points being placed on your driver's license. If you have a Georgia license, points will be placed on your driver's license based on Georgia's point schedule. If you have a license from another state, points are assessed based on your own home state's DMV point schedule.
How to Fight a Super Speeder Ticket
Generally, super speeder tickets are issued after an officer has clocked you going above the posted limit, usually by using a speed-measuring device, such as a radar gun. Several different errors could cause inaccurate readings.
Depending on the circumstances, a super speeder ticket could be fought by raising defenses such as:
- The speed-measuring device was poorly maintained or calibrated
- The officer using the device wasn't properly trained
- The device calculated the speed of a nearby vehicle
- There was interference when speed was being measured
