What is the Utah speed limit?

I’m driving up to Utah to visit some family. After we get together, I’m going to travel around the state to see some of its top attractions. I just want to make sure I know what the speed limit is so I don’t get a ticket—what’s the speed limit in Utah?

Sounds like a great balance of family time and adventure! To avoid getting a speeding ticket, note that the Utah speed limit is a maximum of 80 mph, although this is only along rural stretches of the interstate. Generally speaking, the interstate speed limit is typically between 65 and 70 mph, so keep a watchful eye on the posted speed limit so you don’t get pulled over.
Some of the other Utah speed limits you should be aware of include:
  • 55 mph to 65 mph on Utah State Highways
  • 25 mph in residential areas and business districts unless otherwise posted
  • 20 mph in school zones unless otherwise posted
Because Utah has remote roads between major road trip attractions, you may want to consider towing and labor coverage—it functions just like roadside assistance. To get the best rate on this coverage or to compare rates on your regular coverage, download the Jerry app today.
