No, being classified as a super speeder does not result in additional points on your license. Points are determined by the specifics of your original speeding ticket, considering factors such as your location and exact speed. However, it’s crucial to note that failure to pay the extra super speeder fine may lead to license suspension, irrespective of points. If you have concerns about how points may affect your driver’s license or if you face potential suspension, consulting a super speeder lawyer is advisable. An attorney can provide insights into the impact on your driving record and guide you through the necessary steps.
Can you plead NOLO with a super speeder ticket in Georgia if under 21?
Pleading nolo with a super speeder ticket in Georgia holds limited value in avoiding point assessment specifically related to the offense. While it may not impact points, a nolo plea could be beneficial in other cases associated with the original matter, especially in determining fault or liability.
For individuals under 18, seeking guidance from an experienced attorney is crucial to explore potential steps to prevent a driver’s license suspension. For those aged 18 to 21, a nolo plea can avoid point assessment for offenses with three points or less.
However, it’s essential to note that a nolo plea won’t prevent license suspension for specific offenses listed in O.C.G.A. 40-5-57.1, including:
- hit and run,
- reckless driving,
- attempting to purchase alcohol unlawfully,
- DUI, and others.
Additionally, license suspension remains applicable for offenses with four or more points, such as reckless driving, aggressive driving, unlawful passing of a school bus, improper passing on a hill or curve, and exceeding the speed limit by 24 miles per hour or more, such as a super speeder-related offense.
Is a super speeder ticket similar to a reckless driving charge in Georgia?
Super speeding is a form of reckless driving, but with differing penalties. A super speeder conviction registers on a criminal background check, potentially impacting job opportunities involving driving responsibilities. While a super speeding ticket doesn’t lead to jail time, it incurs a criminal fine of an extra $200.
In contrast, a reckless driving conviction is a criminal misdemeanor, carrying potential additional penalties and the risk of jail time. To mitigate the consequences, especially regarding employment prospects, it’s advisable to consult a super speeder lawyer promptly upon receiving notification of speeding at 75 mph on a two-lane road or 85 mph on other roads.
What is my defense against a super speeder speeding ticket in Georgia?
While facing a super speeder ticket may seem daunting, there are effective defenses to explore. Your super speeder lawyer can potentially:
- Negotiate a Lesser Charge: Skilled negotiation may lead to a reduction in the severity of your ticket.
- Dispute Speeding Results: Challenge the validity of the police report, laser, radar, or other methods used by the officer to establish speeding.
- Court Representation: Your lawyer can represent you in court, providing a strong defense if necessary.
Navigating a speeding ticket defense can be complex, but with the expertise of a super speeder lawyer, you can pursue the best possible outcome for your case.
In addition to these general strategies, specific defenses may include scrutinizing factual inaccuracies, exploring procedural defenses, challenging pacing inaccuracies, and questioning radar gun precision. Demonstrating the inadequacy of evidence is crucial for a successful defense, and your testimony can play a vital role in achieving a favorable “not guilty” verdict.
