What in the world is a ‘Super Speeder’? In Georgia, if you are convicted of speeding at 75mph+ on a 2-lane road or 85mph+ on a 4-lane road or highway, you are considered a Georgia Super Speeder and could be paying big time. In addition to the regular fines and fees paid to the court where the speeding offense occurred, the convicted driver will be assessed a $200 Super Speeder ‘state fee’ IN THE MAIL, long after the payment of the original ticket. Paying a traffic citation online is a good as pleading GUILTY in court!
What happens if I decide not to pay that $200 Georgia state fee that comes in the mail?
Answer: If you fail to pay the Super Speeder fee within 120 days, your driving privileges and your driver’s license will be suspended. If you are keeping track, that’s $250 in additional fees tacked onto the steep court fines you already paid to complete your traffic ticket.
What if I am an out Out of State driver?
Georgia police aren’t required to tell you that you are in violation of the Super Speeder law. That’s because the Super Speeder fee is a civil penalty separate from the criminal case. In just one example, a man was cited for driving 86 mph in a 70 mph zone in Darien, Ga. It wasn’t until after he paid the $200 ticket that he says he was informed he was labeled a “Super Speeder” and required to pay $200 more.
What most drivers passing through the state of Georgia don’t realize is that when they pay that speeding ticket, they are essentially admitting they are guilty of being a Super Speeder according to Georgia law.
