Here is some advice on vehicle speed from the California Driver Handbook. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

Regardless of the posted speed limit, drivers need to keep these factors in mind when determining how fast to drive:

  • The number and speed of other vehicles on the road.
  • Whether the road surface is smooth, rough, graveled, wet, dry, wide or narrow.
  • Bicyclists or pedestrians walking on the road's edge.
  • Whether it is raining, foggy, snow­ing, windy or dusty.
