In 2006, ATA asked the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to require heavy trucks not only to install speed limiters but to limit truck speeds to 68 mph. In 2008, it adjusted the request to reduce truck speeds to 65 mph.
Earlier this month, ATA leaders renewed their request that DOT act quickly to issue the proposed rule.
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told a congressional subcommittee last week a proposed rule mandating speed limiters will be issued no later than this fall.
