Super Speeder

Hello everyone.
I wasn't sure where to post this but I figured I would start here.
Yesterday, I got pulled over by Georgia State Patrol for speeding...doing 93 in a 55 zone.
I had a speeding ticket previously as well, which was a 68 in a 55 zone in 2011.
Looking back at it, I know this was incredibly stupid and I hope to learn from it. I know I have to pay a $200 super speeder fine to the state of Georgia but anybody have an idea of what the local fine would be in the city of Sandy Springs, GA? I'm supposed to appear in court on July 3, 2013 and I wonder if the judge will cut me any slack at all. I wonder if being an honor student/president's list in college, etc will help at all? What would you say/do?

-jay

I would do a little community service, possibly take a defensive driving class. These are things my lawyer told me to do when I was caught racing in the past. Although your charge is far less serious, judges send honor students and deans list kids to jail everyday so dont think that will cut you any slack, especially if you already have another prior speeding ticket.

I assume you were on 285 or 400. It is so easy to nudge triple digits on both of those roads. 285 with its recent repaving and 400 is always a pretty smooth road. Where was the cop sitting?

Agree that a judge probably won't give a rip about you being an honors student. I can't imagine the city fine would be any worse than the state SS fine.

Im 18 and I got pulled over doing 107 in a 55 also having a previous super speeder and my ticket was $700 plus the $200 super speeder fine. i also got my license suspended and had to do defensive driving. Probably the DUMBEST thing Ive ever done.
