Depending upon the offense that you have been charged with, simply paying your traffic ticket – which can be done online, in-person, on the phone, or through paper mail – and moving on may be the smartest thing to do; in some cases, fighting a traffic ticket just isn’t worth the hassle.

Georgia also has a Super Speeder law:
Which defines a Super Speeder as a driver convicted of speeding at 75 mph or more on a two-lane (undivided) road or at 85 mph and above on any road or highway in the State of Georgia.
In addition to the fines and fees paid to the jurisdiction where the speeding offense took place, a $200 Super Speeder state fee is to be paid by the convicted driver. Failure to pay the Super Speeder fee within 120 days of official notice will result in the suspension of the offender’s license or driving privileges.
