About the Law
The going too fast for conditions law (RCW 46.61.400) can be a little confusing to interpret. One portion of it says, “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.” What may be reasonable and prudent to someone may be different to another.
It is up to the officer in Tacoma, Washington to determine if you were going too fast for conditions. The best part about that is they have to prove it if you decide to fight it. There are also specific limits mentioned in the law, but most people do not read laws so having an experienced attorney on your side is the best option.
When the Violation Applies
Most of the time this type of ticket, or violation, comes as a result of an accident. Receiving a ticket after being in a crash can add insult to injury. While it may sound like it, it does not mean that you were speeding. It could mean that it was raining and a “reasonable” person would go under the speed at which you were traveling, therefore causing the accident.

The officer not seeing the collision makes it reasonably easy for a Tacoma, Washington attorney to defend.
