In reference to the statement "Super speeder laws continue to rake in money for local police departments..."

For clarification, local police departments do not receive any revenue from O.C.G.A. 40-6-189 commonly known as the "super speeder" law. In fact, the fine is paid directly to the Georgia Department of Driver Services and is handled after the citation is processed in the local court.

The fines collected are placed in the state general fund and are to fund Georgia's trauma care hospitals. I believe The Office of Treasury and Fiscal Services is tasked with accounting of these funds. It may be able to assist you with additional information.

In regards to "slightly" over the speed limit and speeding fines collected by the City of Milton, I would be glad to provide more specific information upon request.

Thank you.
