Are tickets more expensive the faster you speed?

Sometimes, you do not realize that you have been speeding until you pass a cop on the side of the road and they pull up behind you. Depending on how fast you were going, the fine may be extensive.

It is important to note that the reason for such high fines is that speeding can be dangerous. The NHTSA reports that over 10,000 individuals were killed in accidents related to speeding.

Fines for speeding in Georgia

Georgia considers speeding a misdemeanor. While there is typically no jail time involved, you can face a hefty fine depending on how fast you were going. Georgia classifies speeding tickets in four categories with a more expensive fine the higher the speed. The categories are:

  • 15-18 mph over the limit
  • 19-23 mph over the limit
  • 24-33 mph over the limit
  • 34 mph or more over the limit

The price per ticket depends on the situation, but the maximum amount for a ticket is $1,000.

Points for speeding in Georgia

When an officer pulls you over for speeding, depending on how fast you were going you can receive points on your driving record. If you obtain 15 points in a two-year period, the DMV may suspend your license.

  • 15-18 mph over the limit: 2 points
  • 19-23 mph over the limit: 3 points
  • 24-33 mph over the limit: 4 points
  • 34 mph or more over the limit: 6 points

If the police pull you over for speeding, it is likely that you will need to pay a fine as well as gain points on your driving record, but it is not the end of the world.
