WASHINGTON STATE'S SPEEDING LAWS.
Washington State's speeding laws can be found in the Rules of the Road section of the Revised Code of Washington. Specifically, RCW 46.61.400 details Washington's speeding statute.
Washington State's primary speeding law, RCW 46.61.400 is not Washington only law dealing with speeding on its roads and highways. It is, however, by far the most common statute that is cited when a person is alleged to have been speeding. Washington State's traffic laws have a number of provisions where speeding in and of itself, depending on the specific conditions, can give rise to other infractions or even crimes.
For example, if the speeding occurs within a school zone, it is highly likely that a person will not be cited under Washington State's speeding law. Instead, they will probably be cited under the Washington school zone traffic law, which can be found in RCW 46.61.440. This WA speeding law is entitled "Maximum speed limit when passing school or playground crosswalks — Penalty, disposition of proceeds."
