I received a ticket and paid it. Thought that was the end of it. The state of Georgia sent me a super speeder ticket a month after stating the state automatically charges you for super speeder ticket even if you were not charged by the police that issued the ticket. I have loss 3 jobs due to the super speeder ticket. I need to work.
Contact the clerk of court where you paid the ticket and make sure they reported the correct speed. The state only issues super speeder tickets based on the speed reported to them.

If your are contesting this just because the ticket didn't specifically state "Super Speeder" then you don't have a valid defense. 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.
