Super Speeder. Sounds awesome right? Speed racer would be flattered to have a Super Speeder on his record, heck maybe there’s a few racers that would like that too. You know who else likes the super speeder designation? Insurance companies.
In Georgia, A super speeder ticket is the equivalent of a reckless driving charge. That’s a 4-point ticket that in addition to a speeding ticket can be up to 10 points on a Georgia driver’s record.
According to the Georgia General Assembly section, O.C.G.A. § 40-6-189: The Super Speeder designation in Georgia is classified as any speeding stop that the recorded speed is 74 MPH or over on a two-lane road, or 84 MPH or higher on any state road.
If a super speeder ticket is given on an offense of 34 MPH or more, it adds up to a 10-point ticket automatically. The normal point system allows for 15-points within a 24 month period, and your could have your license suspended. If a driver is under the age of 21, a single 4 point offense can cause the loss of a license in Georgia.
But the truth is there a lot more people that wouldn’t like the super speeder designation on a record, mainly you and your family, and your employer.
Having something as harmful as a super speeder on a driving record can be a huge “tag” that flags drivers with bad driving habits.
Super speeder has been put into effect so that Georgia drivers will be more cautious and deterred to drive, but the other side is for the state to increase revenue for fines. It was estimated that in the first year of the super speeder law, more than $23 million in additional revenue would have been made for the state. All counties are eligible for the super speeder increase, including Turner, Savannah and Dooly County.
