Many of our clients were driving on Route 13 and were unaware that certain parts of that highway have a speed limit of 45 mph while other parts of the highway have a speed limit of 55 mph. Others are surprised that speeding on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, where they were not expecting CBBT police to camp out, would land them with a criminal misdemeanor charge of reckless driving by speed.
