Fines for §1180(a) - Speed Not Reasonable or Prudent
by Seth Azria on 2/04/2019
Speeding Without Exceeding the Limits
This charge is sometimes given in connection with an accident. For example, when a car slides off the road and hits a guardrail. Even though the police may not have witnessed the event, the charge applies because the officer may conclude that the driver was not driving at prudent speed at that time. Even if the speed limit is 65 mph, and a person is driving 45 mph, if the road conditions are poor, they still could be charged under this section of the law. This speeding ticket does not involve a definite speed.
