Should Heavy Duty Trucks Have Speed Limiters? There’s a New Law Being Passed to Do This

Share this

65 miles per hour is the max heavy trucks will be allowed to go under a new law expected to be published in a matter of weeks, if the DOT has accepted the ATA’s recommendations, but details of the bill have not yet been made public.

The American Trucking Associations asked that a 65 mile limit apply to all trucks weighing over 26,000 pounds.

The requirement has been in the works since 2014, when it was proposed by the ATA and Roadsafe America, and will be implemented by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Not much is known about exactly what the new law will contain, such as time frames and speed limits.
