THE Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and the Trucking Alliance have announced their support for a bipartisan US Senate bill to install 'speed limiters' in big rigs to 65 miles per hour.

'Fuel efficiency will dramatically increase with lower maximum speeds. This will improve both the environmental and business aspects of the industry as well,' said TCA vice president David Heller.



The bill is supported by grassroots safety advocates such as Road Safe America, Citizens for Reliable and Safe Highways and Parents Against Tired Truckers, noted New York's FreightWaves.



Known as 'The Cullum Owings Large Truck Safe Operating Speed Act of 2019,' the legislation is sponsored by Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) and Chris Coons (D-Delaware).
