Failure to use Due CareAt Citation Nation we fight to get your traffic ticket dismissed!
The fact that the speed of a vehicle is lower than the prescribed limits doesn’t relieve the driver from the duty to decrease speed when approaching and crossing an intersection, when approaching and going around a curve, when approaching a hill crest, when traveling upon any narrow or winding roadway, or when special hazards exist or may exist with respect to pedestrians or other traffic or by reason of weather or other roadway conditions, and speed shall be decreased as may be necessary to avoid colliding with any person, vehicle or other conveyance on or entering the street in compliance with legal requirements and the duty of all persons to use due care.
Failing to do so can result in a ticket. An officer may also cite you for failing to use due care for other reasons. A violation of this section is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation under Florida Statutes s. 316.185.
