Horseshoe Bend, Idaho Speed Traps
Northbound from Boise, as you descend the big (fast)grade down into the valley of Horseshoe Bend, the speed limit drops from 45 to 25 within a few feet. Right at that point, you are busted. All the way through town, the speed limit is 15-25 and it is a State Highway on the way to a major tourist destination. Enforcement southbound starts at the Hwy 52 turn-off (to the right) and goes to the start of the grade at the other end of town.
Highway 55 runs through the middle of this small town between Boise and Cascade. The Highway changes from 4 lanes to 2 in the city limits with a posted speed of 35 mph, THEN in the middle of town there is a school speed limit sign with a blinker that slows all traffic to 25 mph. There is no time shown for this speed and the blinker is always on, day and night, weekdays and weekends. State law has been changed to use school zones only "when children are present" and this is not the case in Horseshoebend.
