Which of the following statements about Nevada's speed limits is FALSE?


You must not exceed the posted speed limit, not even when passing another vehicle. Nevada law also requires you to always drive at a "reasonable and proper" speed given the actual driving conditions at the time. In poor driving conditions, you must slow down below the posted speed limit. Otherwise, you can be cited for driving too fast for current conditions. (A conviction will add two points to your driving record.) On the other hand, driving too slowly can also be dangerous because it may provoke other drivers into passing you even under unsafe conditions. Under Nevada law, if you are driving so slowly that five or more other vehicles are stuck behind you, you must pull over as soon as it is safe to do so and let them pass.
