Georgia’s Super Speeder Law

There are numbered signs on the right side of every Georgia road. These signs display big bold, black letters and numbers and are distinctive in their specific location.  Yet, drivers passing these signs seem to ignore them time and time again.

It’s unfortunate to consider how many people have lost their lives in car accidents due to speeding drivers.  The car wrecks seem to be getting worse and the statistics have become more alarming throughout Georgia and across the United States. Yet, the solution is clear: SLOW DOWN.

In 2010, Georgia lawmakers enacted the Georgia Super Speeder law in an effort to make Georgia’s roads and highways safer by forcing drivers to slow down.  While many Georgia drivers have heard of the Super Speeder law, most drivers don’t actually know what it says.

Georgia’s Super Speeder law can be found in O.C.G.A. § 40-6-189.  The Super Speeder law allows for the Department of Driver Services (DDS) to assess additional fines and penalties to drivers who either plead guilty to, or who are found guilty of, violation Georgia’s Super Speeder law.  For example, if a driver admits guilt or is found guilty of speeding and the speeding violation qualifies as a Super Speeder violation, that driver is responsible for paying the speeding fines plus additional fines or penalties that will be assessed by the DDS.

Georgia’s Super Speeder Law Defined

What violation qualifies as a “super speeder” violation?

A driver is classified as a Super Speeder if they:

  • Drive at a speed of 85 miles per hour or more on any road or highway; or
  • Drive at a speed of 75 miles per hour or more on any two-lane road or highway.

How much is a “super speeder” fine?

In addition to any other fines or penalties imposed by any local court for the speeding violation, the Department of Driver Services shall administer and collect a fee of $200.00 from any driver who is convicted of a Super Speeder violation.

Car Accidents Caused By Speeding Drivers

Georgia’s Super Speeder law is intended to crack-down on the number of Georgia speeders as speeding drivers not only endanger themselves, but they also put others Georgia drivers at risks. In fact, the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety says that there is a speed-related death in Georgia every single day!

The hope remains that Georgia’s Super Speeder law will reduce the amount of Georgia car accident deaths.  However, in the past 5 years wrongful death car accidents have most frequently occurred in Fulton, Gwinnett, DeKalb and Cobb counties.  Slow down to save money (and lives).
