Driving Too Slowly in Fairfield is Considered Reckless for One Trumbull Resident

Police didn't make an arrest

Typically, reckless drivers are synonymous with speeding, but not for one Trumbull resident, who alerted Fairfield police that someone was driving too slowly, the Fairfield Citizen reports. 

A woman was driving down Fairfield Beach Road with her hazardous lights on when the Trumbull woman called police, the Citizen reports. 

The driver told police she had her flashers on because she was going slow as she looked for a particular house, the Citizen reports. No police action was taken.

Driving too slow and "driving unreasonably fast" are two violations that allow a lot of discretion on the part of the police officer. If traveling too slow or too fast, while not breaking the law, is going to cause an accident, it is considered unreasonable, and can get the driver a ticket, or worse, create civil liability if you cause injury to others.

That may be true, but the speed limit on Fairfield Beach Road is, I believe 25 mph. The other driver had her hazard lights on, I'm thinking most reasonable people would understand she was either looking for an address or having car problems--not driving "recklessly."

Was the Trumbull woman using a hands free cell device? If not she was breaking the law. Hate to see what this Trumbull woman does if she gets behind a funeral.
