Common theory questions

What does "sufficiently low speed" mean?

The law contains 15 specific situations and places where you need to maintain a sufficiently low speed to reduce the risk of accidents.

There is no specific speed specified in the law, but you need to maintain a speed that is adapted and low enough for the situation or location.

You need to maintain a sufficiently low speed:

  1. In densely built-up areas.
  2. When visibility is impaired due to darkness or bad weather conditions.
  3. At pedestrian crossings or other places where pedestrians cross the road.
  4. Where cross traffic can occur.
  5. On sharp turns.
  6. At hilltops and other places where visibility is obscured.
  7. Where there is risk of dazzle (where bright light makes it harder to see).
  8. When meeting other vehicles on narrow roads.
  9. On slippery roads.
  10. When approaching a bus, tram or school shuttle which has stopped to let passengers on or off.
  11. When approaching children on or beside the road.
  12. When approaching livestock (cows, for example) on the road.
  13. Where road work is in progress.
  14. When passing the scene of an accident.
  15. In dirty road conditions where there is risk of splashing other road users.
