Is it OK to speed in an emergency?

The bottom line, even in an emergency, is that the law still applies. Law enforcement says, you can refuse an ambulance, but if you do, you must go the speed limit to the hospital. Also, the sheriff’s department says it can’t give you a ride because of liability.

In short, an officer can still ticket you for driving at or below the posted limit, if it is unsafe to do so. (Which helps explain why police officers rarely write tickets for speeding less than 5 mph over the speed limit.) But proving that it was safe to go 65 mph in a 35-mph zone will be close to impossible.
