Traffic Tuesday - Too Fast For Conditions

Traffic Tuesday - Too Fast For Conditions

(March 19, 2019)- Traffic Tuesday! For this Traffic Tuesday we will be focusing on what is driving too fast for conditions.

On days like today where we have some rain the roads get very slippery to the point that your tires lose friction. We should all know that a loss of friction is very bad when you want to turn or stop. Why would the roads be so much more slippery when there’ rain? The rain water fills all the crevices in the road where a lot of the oils had secretly hid away. Oil rises along with there being a thin layer of water on top of the road surface causes less friction between your tire and the asphalt roadway not to mention larger pockets of standing water. This means you should SLOW down when driving in the rain…..actually, you MUST slow down in the rain or you can receive a ticket.

Florida State Statute 316.183 governs driving too fast for conditions and states: No person shall drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing. In every event, speed shall be controlled as may be necessary to avoid colliding with any person, vehicle, or other conveyance or object on or entering the highway in compliance with legal requirements and the duty of all persons to use due care.

A violation of this statute is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation. 

REMINDER: If you have traffic concerns, you can submit them here: www.capecops.com/traffic. Your concern will be routed directly to the Traffic Unit for follow-up. Please be as detailed as possible to include things like days of week, times you are seeing the issue, or specific cars (if it is a particular vehicle with which you are having an issue).
