Bellevue, Idaho Speed Traps
As you head North on ID 75 towards Bellevue the speed limit is 65 with most people driving above 70. About 1 mile from the US 20 intersection the speed drops to 55 just before the road drops down a steep incline towards US 20. There is a well hidden pullover just past the crest to the right where the ISP and local police like to sit and catch drivers who haven’t yet started to slow down.
Speed limit of 25 extends well beyond town so people get impatient and start going faster. Even the police and bus drivers drive more than 25. Then on some unknown schedule, the police crack down on the speed limit for a few hours.
The speed limit used to be 35, but some people complained motorists were going 45. Now that the posted limit is 25, the average speed is 35.
