Basic Speed Law - Adjusting Your Speed to the Current Conditions


It would be far too simple for us to believe that as long as we are driving the speed limit in California, we will never get a speeding ticket. In fact, even if you’re going the posted speed limit, it is still possible for you to get a speeding ticket. How is this possible, you ask? Well, it all depends on the conditions of the drive. For instance, although the posted speed limit may be 65mph, if you’re driving in the middle of a rainstorm, going to the posted speed limit, you may still be pulled over and given a speeding ticket. When there is severe weather, you need to decrease your speed to avoid getting a speeding ticket. Other conditions where the Basic Speed Law applies are severe weather, construction zones, children playing in the streets or on along the sidewalk, and more.
