Georgia Speeding Penalties
In Georgia, speeding is a misdemeanor. This means it could lead to a 12-month incarceration and/or $1,000 fine. Speeding is broken down into absolute limits and basic speeding laws. Absolute limits determine the appropriate speed for different areas and roadways such as a school zone or highway. Basic speed laws prohibit driving at speeds faster than what is safe under current road conditions. For example, even if the posted limit is 65 miles per hour, a storm and fog that hinder your ability to drive safely at that speed would present danger, making driving at 65 MPH a violation of the basic speeding law.
Consequences from speeding vary based on the amount of miles over the speed limit you drove and your past driving record.
- State of Georgia Super Speeder: In addition to the penalties given by local courts, the State of Georgia has imposed its own punishments on drivers going well over the speed limit. The state will collect $200 from drivers on any road or highway going above 85 MPH or anyone driving on a two-lane road above 75 MPH.
The judge may also order the driver to attend a defensive driving course, which could serve in addition to other punishments or in place of them.
