A: Georgia will consider that a "Super Speeder" ticket under O.C.G.A. § 40-6-189. If you pay the ticket without going to court or are convicted in court of going that speed, Georgia will assess an additional $200 fee payable to the state above and beyond whatever you paid to the court. You should talk to a local lawyer about the possibility of getting the speed reduced or the charge amended to avoid that extra penalty.
