Rural Interstate speed limits increased 5 years ago

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa House of Representatives narrowly passed a measure to raise the speed limit on Iowa's rural Interstates April 1, 2005.  The bill raised the speed limit to 70 miles an hour and also nearly double speeding fines. 

Revenue from the fine-increases helped the Iowa State Patrol replace its trooper-cars and help fund the court system.
