Can Driving Too Slow Get You a Ticket?

Can Driving Too Slow Get You a Ticket?

The traffic laws of the state in which the driver is currently traveling must be followed by all motorists. These laws are there to keep everyone on the road safe, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. While it’s always best to err on the side of caution when driving, there are some actions that might actually make things worse and result in a ticket.

Speed limits specify the top speed at which a vehicle may be operated in ideal circumstances, such as during the day on dry roads. In order to account for adverse weather conditions like wind, rain, and fog, drivers are expected to slow down. In general, a driver should travel at a speed that allows them to control their car without endangering other drivers.

Although it is well known that speeding is a traffic infraction, overcorrecting the act can also result in a ticket. A police officer may stop the driver and issue a ticket if the driver’s slow speed increases the likelihood of a collision or raises questions about everyone’s safety.

The law in Florida also permits police to issue tickets to people who are moving too slowly in the left lane when another vehicle is attempting to pass them. This infraction costs $143 in fines and results in points being added to the driver’s license. The most striking aspect of this law is that even when drivers are traveling at the posted speed limit, they may still get a ticket.

If you have a traffic ticket you would like to fight, such as a speeding ticket, contact a Miami traffic attorney. If you have reason to believe you unfairly received a red light ticket, contact a red light camera violation attorney.
