Question:

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

A The maximum speed limit in an urban area is 35 mph except where otherwise posted.
Explaination

Under South Dakota law, you must drive at a speed that is reasonable and prudent for current driving conditions, even if that speed is below the maximum speed limit. For example, when driving on a snowy road, slow down well below the speed limit. You can be cited for driving too fast for current conditions even if you aren't exceeding the speed limit. The maximum speed limit in an urban area is 25 mph except where otherwise posted. In South Dakota, you are allowed to exceed the speed limit by up to 10 mph to pass another vehicle on a two-lane road whose speed limit is 65 mph, if the other vehicle is traveling below the speed limit. This will help you complete the pass sooner.
