Marietta, GA asked in Traffic Tickets for Georgia

Q: Super speeder definition in Georgia

According to the website, super speeders are "drivers ticketed for traveling 75 mph or faster on a 2-lane road or 85 mph or faster on other roads or highways." If I was going 80 on a 45, which happened to be two lanes on either side of a median (4 lanes in total), is this a super speeder.

Also, if I am 17, what are the chances that I don't get my license taken away? If I do get my license taken, how long will it be for.

One last thing, will moving the court date to two months later than it already is hurt my case? It would still be within 120 days.

A: The ticket is not technically a "super speeder," but at 17 years old, there can be serious consequences for a speeding violation of 35 miles over the limit. The specifics will depend on what particular court your case is in; I would recommend that you speak to an attorney who has the knowledge and experience to navigate you through this situation.

A: What chance no suspension? Not good at your age. I recommend you contact several attorneys in your area that practice this type of law, as soon as possible. Thank you for using Justia ask a lawyer. BTW 7,000 pedestrians were killed last year. You don't want to be that driver, you could be charged wit vehicular manslaughter, and then a license suspension would be the least of your worries.
