Interstate 80 near Tunnel by the City of Green River

Rock Springs, WyomingAug 26, 20042 Comments

West of Rock Springs there is usually a few speeders on the side of the road. It’s 75 until you get to the tunnel then they drop it to 65. They wait for you to come out the other side and down the hill and there will be a State Patroller there. I’ve been pulled over there, as have several of my friend, and none of us live anywhere near there.

It’s a great idea for them: I-80 traffic is mostly people from out of state so nobody will contest. Thats how they can get off writing $200 tickets for going 80 in a 65. Out of State tickets don’t hurt you driving record, only your wallet.

This is not a speed trap. In the winter (October thru April) ice has a tendency to build up at the entrances to the tunnels, and can cause some very serious accidents. In fact about three of four times a year the interstate is closed down because of a trucker thinking that he cant pile one up in front of the tunnels.
