In the state of Florida, drivers are expected to follow the posted speed limit. Drivers are also expected to travel at a speed which is safe for current conditions. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles explains that traveling above posted limits or going too fast for conditions can result in a moving violation and points on a driver’s license. A Miami car accident lawyer can provide assistance to victims of speeding accidents in pursuing a case for compensation against those drivers who caused crashes to occur.
