Speeding bill headed to Idaho Senate

Associated Press

BOISE – Legislation allowing drivers to speed while passing other vehicles on some highways faced few road bumps getting out of the Idaho House.

House members voted 60-5 Friday to allow drivers to go 15 mph over the speed limit while passing fellow drivers on two-lane highways. The bill would only apply to roads with a 55 mph speed zone or higher. Drivers still would not be allowed to speed while passing on freeways.

Rep. Lance Clow, a Republican from Twin Falls, says his measure has received mostly positive feedback from law enforcement agencies.

HB 132 now goes to the Senate for approval.
