Re: Driving too slow in a 50 km/h zone

What I was also saying that speed limit can't be higher than what is allowed by visibility . In conditions like fog etc - it's driver to adjust speed to the conditions however speed limit of 50 means there is conditions that permit one to drive 50kmh. Driving slower is OK - however if you believe you cant drive 50 in given place ever due to the visibility there is than two things - either driver's vision issues or wrong speed limit is wrong.
You may believe this, but as ASITUS posted you are simply wrong based on the law.

The driver must adjust their speed based on the road to ensure safety, regardless of the posted limit which does not indicate a safe speed.

A simple example from close to me - good conditions, 80kph speed limit but no way going 80 would be safe.
