  • What does "reasonable and prudent speed" mean?

Another reason the teens crashed was because of distracted driving or not slowing down when they came to the curve in the road. I believe that reasonable and prudent speed means that in weather conditions you should be paying attention and going a slower speed than the posted speed limit to prevent accidents and to be safer. I do think that the time of the accident was significant because that was when the weather conditions were the worst.

Distracted driving and exceeding the speed limit were probably two major causes of the crash. Reasonable and prudent means you are driving within the speed limit, while also maybe slowing down additionally due to weather. Lack of driving most likely played in the role in the crash as the driver was not used to driving in these weather conditions. Driving at 8:30 would only affect your driving if you had just woken up or if you were not well rested.

Distracted driving such as using a cell phone or talking to friends may have played a role in this accident. Speeding also could have been a factor in the cause of the accident. Prudent and reasonable speed refers to a speed that makes sense, and is appropriate and safe for driving conditions. The lack of driving experience may have been a factor since they were teenagers. Finally, it could be significant that the crash was at 8:30am because these teens could have been out the night before which could impair their driving skills if they were tired.

Along with the heavy rain in that area, I think that the teens were distracted while driving. They could have been on a call or on their cellular devices. Inexperience may have also caused the crash, since they were young and probably did not have their license for long. "Reasonable and prudent" means that you should also look at the weather and road conditions and drive at a reasonable speed. The time does not matter as long as they were not tired and/or they had a good nights sleep. If sources do provide that they were fatigued, it is another factor that adds to the crash.

The reason I believe that they lost control of their vehicles was because of the pouring rain. I believe that because they were inexperienced drivers they did not properly know how to drive in difficult conditions. It is very significant that it happened early in the morning because these drivers were still tired most likely and not fully aware of the situations while driving.Reasonable and prudent speed means that the speed limit is only for ideal situations and if the weather is bad that it is ok to go below the speed limit in order to be safe.
