Super speeders!

Harsher Penalties for ‘Super Speeders’ in Georgia.

With costs continually increasing, many states are finding creative ways to supplement their incomes and fund their budgets. Georgia is no different, and its method of supplementing the state income has been to implement harsher penalties for traffic offenders. One such penalty is a new traffic law called HB610, or the ‘Super Speeder’ law.

The Super Speeder law which became effective January 1, 2010 is aimed at curtailing excessive speeding on the highways and byways of Georgia. As such, anyone caught driving at a speed of 80 mph or more on any road in Georgia, be it highway or otherwise, will be classified as a super speeder and be subject to penalties under the law. Additionally, anyone guilty of driving at a speed of 75 mph on a two-lane road will also be classified as a super speeder and be subject to the penalties outlined therein.

The penalty associated with the offense of breaking the law has been judged by many as being excessive or harsh. This, as anyone found guilty of being a super speeder will be required to pay a state fee of $200.00. This fee is in addition to the cost of the speeding ticket, whatever that cost may be. Additionally, failure to pay this state fee will result in an additional fine of fifty dollars, and the suspension of driving privileges and license.

It must also be noted that the super speeder fine cannot be paid at the same time that the speeding ticket is paid, as the Department of Driver Services has to wait on notification from the relevant officials. These official s have a ten day window, after the initial ticket has been paid, within which to notify the DDS. The DDS then has thirty days in which to inform the offending motorist, by mail of the fee charged under the Super Speeder law. Only then can this fee be paid. As such, it is imperative that drivers who run afoul of the law keep their mailing addresses current, or they may find themselves in even greater trouble.

The state has defended this aggressive move, stating that these stiffer penalties should serve to discourage speeding along its roadways. State legislatures argue that this will lead to a reduction in road accidents and fatalities. Their defense also cites the fact that they will be using the income generated from this new road law to fund their trauma network, which is a system of emergency rooms and ambulance services used as first response for accidents within the state of Georgia. Therefore, not only are they staunching the high incidence of speeding and speed related accidents, but they are also helping to save the lives of those unfortunate enough to be adversely affected by accidents within the state of Georgia.

Since the state department has cited its expected income from the Super Speeder law as being approximately $23 million per year, it is obvious that they expect quite a number of persons to break this new law, and they are ready and waiting to catch them when they do, and make them pay. The question is this; will you be one of those who will have to pay the fine for being a super speeder?

Super speeder my ... 80 is a comfortable cruising speed...

I mean I could understand if they classified "super speeders" as say, 50 over the posted limit. But 80 in a 60 or 70? On some highways that is called
the flow of traffic...

You can bet that if it works like they hope it will, other states will see a new source of revenue and jump on it too.
It seems like our government has an insatiable appetite for our money.

Didn't say I would. Criminals are stupid.

No diff than California's 3 strikes law. Much more likely to kill any witnesses and your victim in effort to not go to prison for life.
