Kootenai Cut-off Road

Sandpoint, IdahoFeb 14, 20111 Comments

Kootenai Cutoff Road is a major thorough-fare with 3 lanes of traffic, but the speed limit is only 25 mph., unlike most surrounding roads that are 35-45mph. I believe anytime you have a 25 mph limit on a major road, it’s a trap. The cops usually park right around all those warehouse-looking buildings between the pet shelter and the RR tracks at HWY 200. They also target out-of-state vehicles – at the time, I was driving a friends truck with Wyoming tags. I have never been stopped in my car with Idaho tags, and I am certain I usually drive that road at 35 mph in it.

I would disagree about Kootenai Cutoff being a speed trap, it has multiple apartment complexes and housing adjacent to it. Plus several bus stops that require the bus to stop in the traffic lane and heavy pedestrian traffic on the bike path at the edge of the roadway. All the streets adjacent to it are also posted 25 with the exception of Hwy 95 and Hwy 200 which are posted 45.
