28-701.02. Excessive Speed/Criminal Speed
A. A person shall not:
1. Exceed thirty-five miles per hour approaching a school crossing.
2. Exceed the posted speed limit in a business or residential district by more than twenty miles per hour, or if no speed limit is posted, exceed forty-five miles per hour.
3. Exceed the posted speed limit by more than twenty miles per hour in other locations.
B. A person who violates subsection A of this section is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor.
C. A person who is charged with a violation of this section may not be issued a civil complaint for a violation of section 28-701 if the civil complaint alleges a violation arising out of the same circumstances.
Excessive or criminal speed is a criminal traffic charge. Do not simply plead guilty to a "speeding" charge, because this type of ticket is definitely criminal. It often has to be disclosed on job and school applications and impacts your insurance more negatively than a civil speeding ticket.
