ISP Says More People Ticketed with 80mph Speed Limit

ThinkStock

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho State Police say troopers have handed out more speeding tickets on interstates where speed limits have increased to 80 mph compared to the same time period last year.

The agency tells the Idaho Statesman (http://bit.ly/1AXmt2b) in a story on Thursday that some drivers appear to think the new 80 mph speed limit means they can drive 90 mph.

But agency spokeswoman Teresa Baker says troopers aren’t giving a break on speeding tickets to anyone going over 80 mph.

Speed limits on rural sections of Interstates 84, 86 and 15 increased from 75 to 80 mph in late July.

The agency says at least two crashes in south-central Idaho can be attributed to the higher speed due to drivers misjudging distance and then not being able to react fast enough.
