Legal Question in Traffic Law in South Carolina

Too fast for conditions

After a one car accident with no witnesses or injuries the officer cited the driver with driving 'too fast for conditions'. Can laws be literally changed with the weather without sufficient guidlines or specifics? Can an ''Act of God'' (ie wind and weather) causing an accident be a crime of the driver involved?

Re: Too fast for conditions

I'm not really sure what your asking. Too Fast for Conditions means that there factors exixting, Acts of God or otherwise that indicate that a driver must drive at a speed slower than the speed limit in order to be safe. I don't know from your question what factors existed nor do I know anything about what happened, other than there was an accident. Good luck.
