Lawrence v. State
Facts:

A jury in the Circuit Court for Baltimore (Maryland) convicted defendant of violating Md. Code Ann, Transp. § 21-801(a) and of driving while impaired in violation of Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 21-902(b). Defendant appealed the convictions.  He has been imposed with traffic ticket for speeding in the past.

Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • Md. Code Ann., Transp. 21-801(a) and (b) are more general. Nonetheless, both of those subsections apply only when certain driving conditions prevail. Subsection (a) refers to actual and potential dangers and prohibits driving under those conditions at a speed that is unreasonable or imprudent. Subsection (b) requires the driver to control the vehicle's speed when a collision with a person or vehicle might occur. Read in its entirety, the statute plainly requires drivers to reduce speed, from what otherwise would be a lawful maximum speed, to that which is reasonable or prudent in light of existing conditions that present an actual or potential danger.
  • Though excessive speed certainly may be an actual or potential danger, excessive speed is not a "condition" of the sort envisioned by the Legislature when it enacted Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 21-801. That statute addresses circumstances under which speed must be reduced. Further, the plain language of the section suggests that the conditions requiring a reduced speed under Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 21-801 are not those created by driving behavior, but rather are those external conditions to which a driver must react.
