A teenager sustained severe head injuries in a hit-and-run car accident after a driver struck her as she was trick-or-treating the night of October 31, 2010 in Riverside. The Press-Enterprise reports the car accident happened at the intersection of Lincoln and Jamestown Avenues when a silver pickup truck hit the 14-year-old trick-or-treater and then sped away from the scene. Witnesses say the driver of the pickup made no attempt to slow down or stop before striking the girl. The teen has been hospitalized in critical condition.

I certainly hope this girl has not suffered catastrophic injuries. I wish her the very best for a speedy and full recovery. She and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Many blog sites discuss how to avoid a speeding ticket using California’s Basic Speed Law. Unfortunately, many — if not all — of these sites are full of misinformation. Some people claim that CVC section 22351 allows them to drive faster than posted speed limits under the basic speed law. This is not true. The California basic speed law requires drivers to drive at speeds that are safe for the road conditions. This means that you cannot drive 70 mph in a 55 mph zone and claim that you had to do it in order to keep up with traffic and travel “safely.”

The basic speed law does not give you an excuse to exceed the posted speed limits — ever. Maybe you could get by with it in an extreme emergency, but even then, it’s questionable.
