Today is the long awaited day that the new state ‘Super Speeder Law’ goes into effect in Georgia. And any high-risk drivers who make a habit of ignoring posted speed limits will be the first to feel the pinch of higher state fines (called fees) on their wallets.
I know that im gonna get bashed for this but a lot of the time (not all the time) people that are comfortable traveling at higher rates of speeds have a more alert sense about them and are less likely to have wrecks caused by them. They are more aggressive when it comes to driving. Im not talking about people traveling in excess of 100mph. Im talking about 85mph or there about on I-75. These people are confident and can drive pretty good. Sure you will have some young punk in a honda civic that is 17yrs old weaving in and out of traffic, cutting people off and all that foolish ness. Im not talking about them.
I would rather be around a bunch of grown ups that are comfortable traveling at 80-90 mph rather than my grandmother or others that are terrified to drive to griffin or mcdonough much less traveling on I 75 or other major interstate systems.
I do not have to worry about the super speeder thing. I drive for a living and have to have my license and a clean history at that. I will set my cruise on 80 while on I 75. Going to griffin my cruise will be on on 65mph.
No on other than a GSP can write you a ticket for doing less than 10mph over the posted speed limit. 11mph can be argued in court because the device is accurate withing +/- 1mph so that could drop you down to 10mph if you were doing 11 over.
Anyway. You all pay attn while driving. Keep it between the ditches and the shiny side up.
