Question Of The Day: How Are Speed Limits Set?

I've been a little short on regional blog material lately, so was digging around the Idaho Transportation Department website this morning and found something kind of interesting: ever wonder how speed limits are set?

Well someone must have because that's one of the questions on ITD's 'Frequently Asked Questions' page. Now that I asked, you're curious, aren't you? Well, the way speed limits are set actually involves a little math. And since I got a journalism degree and can't even explain math, let alone do it, here's a link to ITD's answer.
