Georgia's "Super Speeder Law" identifies particularly reckless drivers as those convicted of speeding at 75 mph or more on a two-lane road or at 85 mph and above on any Georgia road or highway.
Pursuant to the law, standard speeding fees and fines apply, plus an additional $200 Super Speeder state fee. Those who do pay the Super Speeder fee or who do not pay it within 120 days of the official notice will have their license suspended or driving privileges revoked. If this happens then the driver must pay a $50 reinstatement fee to get their license or driving privileges back.
