BASIC SPEED Law – VC 22350
Driving at a speed that is Not Safe for Conditions, due to weather, traffic, pedestrians, lighting, road conditions, et cetera.
However, the Use of Radar or Laser by a Police Officer is Illegal – unless a Valid Engineering and Traffic Survey is on file, which justifies the “Posted Speed” Limit. Generally, these Traffic Surveys are inadequate and the cases are dismissed.
