ATLANTA, GA, January 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Georgia is trying to do its part to cut down on speed-related accidents and deaths with its "Super Speeder Law." Unfortunately, many Georgia drivers are still unaware of this 2010 law and its hefty fines. Sam McRae, a traffic lawyer in Atlanta, Ga., wishes to explain the law and its penalties.
Breaking Down the Law
Georgia's Super Speeder Law intends to reduce speeding by heavily fining drivers who drive at dangerous speeds.
The law adds a $200 state fee to local fines which are already in effect for any driver who is convicted of driving at 75 mph or higher on any two-lane road or 85 mph or higher on any road in Georgia.
Should a "super speeder" fail to pay the additional state fee, they will be charged another $50 on top of the $200 and local fines and their driver's license will be suspended.
"The Georgia Super Speeder Law is a strong deterrent against speeding in the state," says Sam McRae, Attorney at Sam McRae Law. "Unfortunately, the very steep fines associated with the law have made it difficult for some Georgia citizens to keep their licenses."
Despite this disadvantage, the state has put funds earned from fining offenders of the Super Speeder Law to good use. The fines go to help fund trauma care hospitals throughout Georgia, which is where many victims of high-speed automobile crashes are treated.
If you have had your driving license suspended under Georgia's Super Speeder Law, you may need to hire an Atlanta traffic attorney to reinstate it. Learn more at http://www.sammcraelaw.com.
