According to the Idaho Supreme Court, an apparent error in Idaho’s legal code could make certain highway speed limits unenforceable.
The judges are asking lawmakers to fix the problem after some speeding tickets were tossed out.
On most Idaho highways, the speed limit is 65. Idaho’s law recognizes that. But in some places, the state has decided to lower the speed limit to 55, say, or 45.
It turns out that Idaho law still says the speed limit is 65.
