If you are on the receiving end of a speeding ticket in Georgia, you are well aware that the speeding citation can be expensive. The fines may vary depending upon numerous factors including how many miles per hour over the speed limit you are which may lead to a Georgia Super Speeder ticket, road conditions and whether or not you are a first time offender. You can hire an attorney to assist in fighting the speeding ticket on your behalf in one of the many Georgia courts across the state, which could help you reduce the points that might damage your driving record and cause a potential suspension of your Georgia Driver’s License if you have multiple speeding ticket violations on your driving record.
