The Department of Transportation and FCMSA has proposed a mandate for speed limiters on heavy-duty trucks. If you oppose the Facebook truck speed limiter mandate you can send a comment to lawmakers opposing the mandate below. The deadline is December 7, 2016.
According to the DOT proposal, truck speed limiters would be required on any commercial truck with a gross weight of 26,000 pounds or more. Maximum speeds of 60, 65 and 68 mph have been suggested yet feedback and data are still needed before a final speed can be determined. The DOT is gathering feedback from owner-operators and industry leaders up until the deadline.
There’s still time for drivers and owner operators to chime in opposing!
Don’t let those who never spent a moment of their life driving a heavy-duty truck dictate legislation for millions of truck drivers.
“A mandate for a one-size-fits-all speed limiter will squelch innovation in technologies to enhance safety and accommodate not only highways but potentially secondary roads and beyond,” said ATA President Chris Spear in a statement.
