IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - In a story Aug. 1 about Idaho speed limits, The Associated Press reported erroneously how much speed limits increased on three state highways. The speed limits increased by five miles per hour on each of the highways, not by 20 miles per hour.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Idaho increases speed limits on several roads

Speed limits have increased on three state highways in Idaho

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Speed limits have increased by 5 mph on three state highways in Idaho.

KIDK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2acOFe4) that that 65 mph signs are being replaced with 70 mph signs on U.S. 20, Idaho 22 and Idaho 28 after the Idaho Transportation Department determined that most drivers go between 70 and 80 mph on those roads.

The IDT says increasing speed limits can result in fewer crashes.

Part of Idaho 28 south of Leadore will be also be increased from 45 to 55 mph.

Current speed limits remain in effect until the new signs are installed.
