Speeding is one of the most commonly cited traffic violations in the Atlanta area and across the state. Unfortunately, this violation can add points to your driving record as well as result in heavy fines and insurance rate hikes. If you accumulate 15 points to your driving record within a two-year period, you are in jeopardy of losing your license.

Getting competent legal help can facilitate that process. In the Atlanta area, you can turn to the Sherman Law Group, a team of attorneys dedicated to fighting DUI and other traffic offenses.

Speeding Tickets in Georgia
Speeding tickets are cited according to the number of miles per hour you allegedly exceeded the posted limit. Fines are assessed as well as points accumulated to your record based on these miles per hour.
If you exceed the posted limit by:
- 15 to 18 miles per hour, you will receive 2 points on your driving record
- 19 to 23 miles per hour, you will receive 3 points on your driving record
- 24 to 34 miles per hour, you will receive 4 points on your driving record
- 34 miles per hour or more, you will receive 6 points on your driving record
Georgia also has a "super speeder" law which adds $200 in additional state fees to drivers found guilty of speeding 75 mph or more on two lane roads or 85 mph or more on multiple lane roads.
