Speeding Tickets

Drivers can receive speeding tickets for exceeding the posted speed limit on a public highway or street.  Speeding tickets can be issued by State, county or local law enforcement officers.

On interstate highways the maximum posted speed can be as high as 75 mph.  Other improved highways rarely have a posted speed limit exceeding 65 mph.  During the energy crisis of the 1970's Congress passed legislation limiting speeds on any road or highway to a maximum of 55 mph in order to conserve fuel.  This limitation lasted from 1974 until 1987 when it was increased to 65 mph.  In 1995 the speed limit limitation was lifted entirely and States were given the authority to set interstate highway speed limits.  The interstate highway system also has a minimum speed limit of 40 mph to protect drivers from slow moving vehicles.

Every State has a list of speed limits for the various types of roads and thoroughfares.  It is the responsibility of licensed drivers to know the State maximum speed limit for the type of road they are on in order to be safe and to avoid receiving a speeding ticket on un-posted roads.
