“There are no justifiable reasons for going that fast. Even if you aren’t concerned about your own safety, you are putting others at risk if something goes wrong,” they said in a statement.

It’s unclear if the driver was arrested or given a citation for speeding.


Georgia’s Super Speeder Law goes into effect when drivers are going 75 miles per hour or faster on a two-lane road or 85 miles per hour on other roads and highways. If caught super speeding, you can expect an extra $200 fine to be tacked onto your ticket.
