It's that time of the year again: no snow on the ground and lots of reasons to take advantage of the wide open and dry roads! Boise Police see a lot this time of year and often--it's tragic. Dubbed the '100 Deadliest Days', this time more than any other is when authorities deal with deaths on the road because there are so many cars out there--and it only takes one inattentive or dangerous driver to ruin it for everyone.

Here's a look at some of the speed radar readings that were recently shared by the Boise Police Department online--can you believe anyone is driving this fast!?

Who needs to go 162 miles per hour anywhere in Boise--or really, anywhere at all!? This is just a dangerous speed!

In a statement to warn the public of the dangers of summer road travel, the Boise Police Department said:

Last year there were at least 92 deaths due to crashes on Idaho roads during the 100 deadliest days of summer. Every year during the weeks between Memorial Day and Labor Day there are more cars on the road and that typically leads to an increased number of car crashes that unfortunately result in death or injury. Our goal is to reduce those numbers, so all summer long we’ll be sharing tips and information to help keep you safe as a driver or passenger on our roads.

The shocking number of deaths on our roads just a year ago is alarming--nearly one death per day of these '100 Deadliest Days'. It's fair to say that this may be one of the greatest dangers in our beloved Treasure Valley community.

Take your time while commuting, keep your eyes on the road, give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination and we'll see you on the roads, Boise!

These 13 Treasure Valley Roads Need a Speed Change

Spend any time driving around the Treasure Valley and odds are you will spot a little bit of road rage. While it's nothing wildly aggressive most times, it seems that with the growth of our city has come a lot of conflicting opinions on HOW to drive on our streets. Roads that were never meant to handle the volume of traffic that they now do have different speed limits-- some that are a little fast, some that are a little slow. We took to our means, Facebook, to ask YOU where the worst roads are at and which speed limits need adjusted. Here is what we found.
