Speeding Bill Passes GA House

Gov. Sonny Perdue’s proposal to charge what some call "super speeders” an extra $200 on their traffic fines was passed by the Georgia House of Representatives.

Under the proposed law, speeders who are travelling at more than 85 mph on an interstate or four-lane highway and those who top 75 mph on other roads will be hit with the new fine.

There is a revenue implication: The governor’s office estimates that the new law could create an additional $23 million a year to help subsidize hospital emergency room operations and to improve emergency trauma care in rural areas.
