SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A measure that would've raised the speed limit by five miles per hour on highways slowed to just a study of a possible increase. The House did, however, approve the other part of Senate Bill 17 that allows drivers to be ticketed for "careless driving." But a person can NOT be ticketed unless they commit another offense first. Careless driving is defined by being distracted by activities NOT related to operating a vehicle. The bill now moves to the House.
