TRUCK SPEED LIMITER

Posted: August 19, 2016 in Kenworth

After 15 months in review, the Heavy Vehicle Speed Limiters proposed rule has cleared the White House Office of Management and Budget, meaning it is available to be published in a few days and a public comment period will begin.  The rulemaking was officially initiated in May 2013.  The OMB approved the proposed rule as “consistent with change” indicating the mandate meets federal regulatory guidelines.  Still unknown is the speed at which the limiters would be set.   The American Trucking Association has suggested a 65 mph limit.  The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association opposes such a rule contending the mandate “would make highways less safe”.
