They used to do that in Fayetteville until someone challenged them about coast down distances. Might want to check into that and see if you can beat the revenuer.
A guy in our neighborhood got a ticket thrown out the same way here in Monroe. Worth a try.

At this point, the fact that the officer was "kind" enough to drop my measured speed to 1mph below "Super Speeder" status as long as I didn't take it to court is enough to make me pay my fine and move along. I'll pay my $210 stupid-tax and avoid that 1/2 mile stretch of 341 for the rest of my life.

If you did go to court, would the officer raise the speed that he wrote ticket for? I’m confused.

Fast driving awards!

My dad always told me that the best way to keep from getting a ticket was to not speed.

Super speeder!?!?! You was hauling ass faster than either posted speed.

Georgia's 'Super Speeder Law' defines a Super Speeder as a driver convicted of speeding at 75 mph or more on a two-lane road or at 85 mph and above on any road or highway in the State of Georgia.


And I think they slap those pretty steel bracelets on for Super speeder. He could a been a dick.

It's your right to go to court, he can't bribe you, no more you bribe him!

Why does the cop care if you take it to court or not? How does it impact him? More/less revenue for his locale I guess. Maybe now they can beautify the parks or something...

Did the hero in blue ask where you were going? Coming from?

"As long as I didn't take it to court"????

I'd file a FOIA request for the bodycam interaction, and go to court, asking why it's OK to extort money - trying to prevent you from exercising your right to challenge a ticket in court.

At least he didn't shoot your dog.

He actually wrote the ticket for a higher amount then dropped it below Super Speeder after we talked for a few minutes.

When I got my super speeder up here in Hart county (84 in a 55) the cop spoke with a colleague of mine at the gas station and he told him where I work. The cop didn't turn the super speeder fine into the state. I just ended up paying the fine in Hart Co. It pays to know people, lol.

hey cheaper than a day at the track :p. also anyone know the stipulations on if they pull you over for speeding when they pass you? had one pass the opposite direction say he got me at ~28 over which i knew would be a juicy ticket but then somewhat begrudgingly told me to chill it out and left. I was left wondering if he was just being cool or couldnt actually ticket me for whatever reason

I've gotten a couple tickets from cops passing me going the opposite direction. Mostly by Snellville cops though, and they are all dickheads.

That's it?!?! Any points on the license?
Yep, that's it. Not sure about points. I haven't gotten a ticket in over 25yrs. I'm not sure about the point stuff.

Idk. My fattest ticket was from a cop going the opposite direction. Got me after 3 miles down the road and said “I clocked you going 9 over, it’s a dangerous curve you should have been going 45.” Which is fair, but what he said next bothered me “I wasn’t going to pull you over then I saw the T I’m a Bulldog.” And then I got a $265 ticket. But man I sure felt safe.

yah this was in lawrenceville so not too far off. And granted as soon as i saw him and passed him was an "aww shit" moment. I know there is some rule about the angle they can hit you at so i wonder if i was outside of it or if he was just being really nice. but considering the speed, location, and fact i was in a loud ass turbo miata i thought my buns was done for sure.

The fact that you're a Tennessee fan should have been enough for him to feel sorry for you and let you go. When it's been 13 years since you've even beaten a top 10 ranked team that should be enough.

I’m not a fan. But it’s a stipulation placed on the vehicle I drive. It’s like a giving Scarlett letter. Haha
