When issuing citation for vc22350, police officers are the ones who determine whether you were driving at a safe speed or not.
Vehicle Code 22350 states that…
“No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.”
That’s a mouthful. Ultimately, it means that you are required to drive at a speed that is safe for the current conditions, regardless of the actual speed limit. If it sounds like there is a lot of leeway and discrepancy here, that’s because there is.

- Being able to clearly see children at play on the side of the road and neglecting to slow down
