2870728-707. Charging speed violation; burden of proof; findings
A. In a charge of violating a speed restriction in this article, the complaint and the summons or notice to appear shall specify the speed at which the defendant is alleged to have driven and the maximum speed applicable within the district or at the location.
B. The provision of this article declaring maximum speed limitations does not relieve the plaintiff in any civil action, other than a civil action to impose a civil penalty, from the burden of proving negligence on the part of the defendant as the proximate cause of an accident.
C. If a person is charged with a criminal offense, except for excessive speed under section 28 701.02, or cited for a civil traffic violation under this article and if the person is operating a commercial motor vehicle as defined in section 28 3001, the court, on conviction of the offense or on adjudication of the civil traffic complaint, shall make a finding based on either an admission or the evidence as to whether the speed that the vehicle was operated was fifteen miles per hour or more over the speed limit. 28707
