In Georgia, speeding is a misdemeanor offense. Any misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.00 and 1 year in jail. As a practical matter, hardly anyone is sentenced to jail as a result of a speeding citation; however, it can happen. With regard to fines, I know of several jurisdictions throughout the state where you would be fined $700.00 (or more) for your ticket. If you have other questions about speeding citations or other traffic offenses, you can visit our site at for more information.

Do points from a speeding ticket in Georgia transfer to your driving record in South Carolina?

This depends on whether the state participate in a nationwide database known as the traffic citation automated transmittal system, better known as TCATS. It is unclear whether Georgia participates in this, but since it neighbors South Carolina, it is not difficult to transfer such points. It also depends on whether you were a South Carolina driver/resident at the time the Georgia ticket was issued. For example, if you were a Florida resident who accumulated six points, and then moved to South Carolina, where you were issued a drivers license (of course, in exchange for your Florida license), generally the points you received in Florida do not transfer to South Carolina. However, if the points do transfer from Florida, the points are cut in half in South Carolina.

If I work in Georgia and live in Florida do I pay Georgia state tax?

I am not positive about this answer, but It depends on what you buy, I guess, and you will pay Florida taxes for home, etc.I THINK!!!!!! I AM NOT 100% SURENO, it has nothing to do with what you BUY. It has to do with payroll law! Reciprocity falls on where you work. If you work in Georgia and live in Florida, YES you have to withhold state tax for Georgia. Your employer should have automatically set you up to withhold Georgia tax. When you fill out the state tax form with Georgia (at the end of the year when you file your taxes), classify that you are a "NON-RESIDENT" for the state of Georgia, since you live in Florida.
