"The Basic Speed Law states that no one speed is best under all conditions. The posted speed limit is simply the maximum recommended speed allowed by law under ideal conditions. The Basic Speed Law implies you must never drive faster than it is safe for conditions at that time. This means that even if you drive within the posted speed limit, under certain conditions, such as in rain, snow, heavy traffic, or bad road conditions, the posted speed may be unsafe and you may be in violation of the law."
