Too Fast For Conditions in Tacoma

reckless drivingThis citation is typically issued after accidents but occasionally when the driving is so egregious that it is obvious to most reasonable people the speeds were unsafe. As the title says, it means you were traveling too fast for the conditions. This does not mean you were going over the speed limit but rather, going too fast for safety reasons. For example, while the speed limit on the free way may be 60 mph, when it is covered in snow and there is poor visibility, it is a very bad idea to be traveling at 60 mph.

When conditions are miserable, there is no special formula to calculate what the proper speed is. There are too many variables to take into consideration. Most of the time, Officers will arrive after an accident has occurred, and the driver will admit that they lost control of their car on ice, water, etc. At that point, the officer will determine had the driver been driving at a slower speed, he or she would not have lost control of the vehicle, hence, too fast for conditions.

Officers writing tickets based off of their observations are less common as the proper speed for conditions is somewhat subjective. Normally, officers will not write the ticket until it is a clear cut case. Whether it is clear cut or not, you should hire an experienced traffic attorney to protect your driving record. The Law Offices of Jason Newcombe are here to discuss your case and fight the ticket.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
