According to Florida Statutes s. 316.183, 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. In every event, speed shall be controlled as may be necessary to avoid colliding with any person, vehicle, or other conveyance or object on or entering the highway in compliance with legal requirements.
On all streets or highways, the maximum speed limits for all vehicle must be 30 miles per hour in business or residence districts, and 55 miles per hour at any time at all other locations. However, with respect to a residence district, a county or municipality may set a maximum speed limit of 20 or 25 miles per hour on local streets and highways.
If you receive a speeding ticket for going thirty miles over the speed limit in a school zone, construction zone or highway, your fines will automatically be doubled, you could receive civil penalties and you may be mandated to complete traffic school.
A speeding violation is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation under the Florida Statutes s. 316.183.
