Speeding is a misdemeanor crime in Georgia, meaning it is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1000 fine, or both. While jail time is rare in speeding cases, it can happen at extremely high speeds. Speeding convictions can also lead to points on your license and also impact your auto insurance rates. Fines in court usually include "court costs" which are usually around 40% of the fine. So a $200 fine would incur approximately an additional $80 in court costs. Here is a chart of how many points are imposed on your driver's license, which depends on how many miles per hour over the speed limit you were considered driving. 14 mph or less is zero points:
- 15 to 18 mph over speed limit
- 19 to 23 mph over speed limit
- 24 to 33 mph over speed limit
- 34 mph or more over speed limit
