FMCSA Idles Proposed Rule for Speed Limiters on Heavy-Duty Trucks


The U.S. DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) removed from active consideration a proposed rule that would have mandated installation of speed limiters in all heavy-duty trucks weighing over 26,000 pounds, reports the July 31 issue of the New England Fuel Institute Online Energy News (NEON).

“The FMCSA stopped short of a formal withdrawal of the speed limiter proposal altogether. Instead, the agency assigned the rule to “inactive” status, effectively removing the controversial rulemaking from further consideration,” writes NEFI’s regulatory counsel, Mark S. Morgan.
