Are Idahoans Ready for 80mph?

Benito Baeza

Starting July 1st the speed limit will officially change to 80mph on the interstate in Idaho. The speed limit on Interstates 15, 84 and 86 will be 80 mph for vehicular traffic and 70 mph for trucks, except in urban areas such as Boise, Pocatello and Idaho Falls. There, the speed limit will stay at 65 mph, as it will throughout northern Idaho, even on I-80. 

While I am personally thrilled about the speed limit change, I know that with an  increased speed limit comes increased accident risk. Safety advocates are worried and cops will be cracking down on the new speed limit. So make sure you aren’t going 81 or 82! An increase in accident risk concerns us all and has many people asking, “are Idahoans ready for 80mph speed zones?”
