Sen. Schumer Urges Finalizing Speed-Limiter Rule

By Team Writer / October 19, 2016

The trucking industry is content to sharing the road with all vehicles. The Share the Road program sends a team of professional truck drivers to cities around the country to teach car drivers about truck blind spots, stopping distances and safe merging around large trucks, all designed to reduce the number of car-truck accidents. The West Virginia Trucking Association is entering into a partnership with West Virginia school superintendents where by they have endorsed Sen. Schemer for the showing of the Share the Road video to all high school students. They also travel to give demonstrations to students each year.

Key Takeaways:

  • Influential Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) lent his support to the proposed federal rule that would mandate electronic speed limiters on commercial vehicles during an Oct. 13 campaign stop on Long Island.
  • Back in August, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration jointly proposed that heavy-duty vehicles be equipped with speed-limiting devices set to a specific maximum speed.
  • That lack of specificity drew the scorn of Chris Spear, president and CEO of the American Trucking Associations, earlier this month during a press briefing at ATA’s Management Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.

““We cannot afford to elevate risks for the motoring public with a rule that does not take into account the danger of differential speeds for cars and trucks.””
