A vast amount of car accidents in Los Angeles are caused due to excessive/unsafe speed. Unfortunately, people who drive too fast or recklessly for conditions presented remain at significant risk of losing control of their motor vehicles. For example, take the recent downhill speeding accident case of billionaire golfer Tiger Woods. As he sped down Hawthorne Blvd in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, he could not go with the road's curve near Torrance. Instead, Tiger proceeded to drive into the center median, throwing his SUV into the oncoming traffic lanes and onto an embankment. Arguably, Wood's showed a "reckless disregard for the safety of property or persons." (See California Vehicle Code Section (CVC) 23103).
Speeding In Cars, Driver Distractions, And Wrongful Death Error Claims
Any time you speed while driving, making your turn, passing another vehicle, or unexpected stops at intersections, you risk injury or death. Your risks of being rear-ended by a reckless driver or from speeding accidents are on the rise. Speeding accident deaths and severe injuries increased exponentially during the COVID-19 lockdowns of 2020. Other illegal and dangerous activities associated with driving too fast are DUI or drug-impaired driving. A significant factor causing deaths is using handheld devices, causing distractions during fast motor vehicle operations. Our intersection accident attorneys know that people driving fast regularly blow through stop signs and red lights.
Combining other risky activities with speeding remains a catastrophic, common cause of multi-chain vehicle collisions and people getting run over on sidewalks and inside crosswalks. Car accident statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) demonstrate during the last 20 years that approximately 17% of all motoring crashes were speed-related mishaps. Common sense tells us that we will place ourselves, our loved ones, including pedestrians and others, in jeopardy by speeding on roads in our daily drivers.

Auto Accidents And Speed Related Impact Forces Can Kill Or Maim You!
A motor vehicle driver traveling at extremely high-speed rates will have less reaction time to slow down or evade approaching road threats. (See Calfornia Vehicle Code Section 21703). If a speeding driver rides the car's bumper in front of them, following too closely, little braking time exists to slow if you get brake checked, for example.
Unpredictable stops or slowing by the vehicle in front of your car, causing your car accident injuries can happen for many reasons, including:
- An animal running into the road, everyone in both vehicles may suffer devastating injuries.
- A blind person crossing the street as the "walk sign" flashes red into "don't walk,"
- An approaching emergency vehicle with sirens and flashing lights,
- In a medical event like a stroke or heart attack,
- Children chasing a ball, darting into the street,
- Mechanical failure,
We know that other obstructions cause vehicle operators to take evasive maneuvers to exist, causing traffic collisions. Increased speeds mean more risks of serious injury or death. Can you think of some more?
Speeding and high acceleration can exponentially increase vehicle impact forces within a motorized conveyance like a passenger car or truck. As the vehicle crashes, your joints, tendons, soft connective tissue, bones, and muscles can receive catastrophic impact forces, leading to serious injuries, coma, or wrongful death action. Even with a roll cage and sturdy auto body construction, high speeds will increase property damage risks to vehicle operators. A heavy enough impact can ignite your vehicle gas tank after your car is crushed, burning you and your vehicle's passengers alive.
We saw this with Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker. He was a passenger in a speeding Porsche that crashed and lit itself on fire, burning him to death. The faster someone drives, the less vehicle occupant protection will be available. Safety devices like seatbelts, driver, passenger-side airbags, run-flat tires, etc., become less effective at saving lives due to the excessive impact G-forces associated with a speeding vehicle collision.
What Are Some Important California Speeding Related Laws?
Our well-schooled lawyers know that going the speed limit is associated with lower casualty rates and insurance claims. The California Vehicle Code (CVC) mandates that all drivers exercise caution and drive safely for road conditions presented.
"No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property." (CVC 22350). Like negligence law, our CVC looks for a person's "reasonableness" in their driving decisions.
So we have no hard and fast rule about speed generally. Instead, motor car drivers are expected to use common sense while navigating California freeways, toll roads, and highways based upon traffic, weather, etc. Vehicle drivers must take special care driving on more minor, localized routes. Drivers must pay attention to the road surface (wet, slick, slippery, etc.) and the amount of traffic. You must obey posted traffic signals so long as doing so does not endanger other property or persons in the process. Hit and run drivers who are located have a history of never providing insurance information or proof of financial responsibility.
We have said that, will present you with the speeding laws relevant to this article.
- Most Cars. The maximum speed limit for most passenger cars will be 65 mph unless 70 mph is posted for you to see along your travel route. (CVC 22352).
- Towed and Trailered vehicles. The maximum speed limit for vehicles towing trailers will be 55 mph if you are rolling on a two-lane undivided highway, unless otherwise posted. (CVC 22406)
- Impeding traffic flow. Believe it or not, driving too slow can also lead to some devastating crashes. CVC 22400 bars interfering with or impeding roadway normal traffic flow. Don't be a dick. Get out of the fast lane. Stop being an arrogant safety hazard trying to own the road! (Go here for more CVC)
In addition to paying penalty assessments, fines, and other charges, penalties for speeding will increase based upon how fast you were going, as well as an ancillary violation for drinking and driving or chatting on your cell phone. Also, if the violator goes too far over the speed limit, they can be charged with a felony! (See CVC 23109)
Even worse, if the speeding driver has a prior criminal record for Vehicle Code offenses, they may end up in prison or Twin Towers jail for a 6-month minimum misdemeanor stint.
- What About Negligence Per Se And L.A. Speeding Vehicle Collisions?
No matter how fast or slow you were going, if you violated a CVC section intended to prevent the type of harm to the type of person you managed or killed, you will be presumed negligent under the theory of "negligence per se."
Your chance to use this rebuttable presumption of negligence to bolster your liability claims will depend squarely on the speeding offense committed. Either way, with our without presumed negligence, California personal injury law entitles victims to a fair financial recovery so long as they can prove their burden of negligence by a preponderance of the evidence.

"I was involved in a three-car pile-up accident on the Interstate 5 Freeway headed to Fashion Island. Out of the blue, I was hospitalized with serious, life-threatening injuries. All the people in the crash were fighting over the same insurance money. Michael and his superb team at Ehline Law made it seem easy and got me paid in full. Although it was no walk in the park, Michael handled everything like a car accident lawyer pro. These are the AAA accident attorneys my family and I call when we seek compensation for all types of damages and injuries we suffer. Ehline was..." — Mike P.
"Mike is honest, caring, forthright, thoughtful, courteous, ...."
With all the dishonest lawyers in Los Angeles, our family was pleased to meet a former United States Marine. Michael Ehline was lead counsel on my serious injury car accident case, and I think he runs the best car accident law firm in town. I suffered terrible injuries in a pretty severe car accident back in 2008. Everything Mike and his paralegal promised me was delivered in spades. Mike is honest, caring, forthright, thoughtful, courteous, considerate, kind, hardworking, and... . . — Mary M.
"Simon was the best accident attorney ever."
I consider Ehline's team of talented employees to be the best in the personal injury business. I was struck by an Uber driver who was driving too fast and chatting on his phone. He didn't even have a driver's license on him. I saw him coming in the rearview mirror and couldn't get out of his way. After spinal fusion surgery, I figured I would be stuck with all the bills and lost income from losing my job! Boy, was I wrong? Michael, his incredibly thoughtful legal secretary, Irene, helped me get full compensation, including money in my pocket. Although I am suffering moderate pain today, the money I got helps cover my ongoing physical therapy. If it wasn't for their lien doctor fixing my spine damage, I doubt I'd be walking today. He had the best doctors, legal team and . . . — Clarence C.
"I lucked out finding such an awesome car accident personal injury attorney."
"I lucked out finding such an awesome car accident personal injury attorney." After all the finger-pointing over my intersection left-hand turn accident, Ehline's investigators located a videotape of my crash from a local business's cam feed. Even though the guy who hit me lied, claiming I caused the crash. The other guy's insurance paid me immediately after seeing the tape. I have hired PI lawyers before during my 20 plus years as a commercial trucker. Michael, John, and the rest of this staff went the extra mile for me, unlike any other law firm I hired. Not only did they clearly explain the car accident compensation process, they explicitly told me they would conduct a better investigation than most lawyers. They didn't lie. They explained everything to me and handle the insurance agent with . . . — Debbie K.
"James negotiated my medical expenses down by almost 30% and let me keep the money with no fee..."
I felt like I was run through a meat grinder after being ejected from my vehicle after being crashed into by a hit-and-run driver. Even though I was frustrated, sliced up, and angry, Michael and his staff met me at my hospital, signed me up, took notes, and encouraged me to heal while his team began their investigation. Ultimately, Michael worked with law enforcement and pinned down the other driver's location. Although Michael couldn't prove the guy who hit me was drunk and made the pizza delivery company, the hit-and-run driver worked to pay me for my surgery and other problems like my lost job and income. I was taken care of, and James negotiated my . . . — Mark C.
