Which of the following is true about Michigan's speed limits?


You must not exceed the posted maximum speed limit. Michigan law requires you to drive at a speed that is "careful and prudent" under current driving conditions. That is, you must drive at a speed that enables you to stop safely under the current road conditions. In bad weather, heavy traffic, or other hazardous road conditions, you must slow down. You can be ticketed for driving too fast for such conditions even if you aren't exceeding the posted speed limit.
