(Salt Lake City, UT) — A Utah House committee is giving a green light to a bill that allows some speed limits in Utah to go up to 80 miles an hour. The measure from Representative Jim Dunnigan of Taylorsville would increase the limits on some areas of freeway or divided highways if the Utah Department of Transportation feels it’s sensible. If 80 is too fast, the bill allows a smaller increase.
