Truckers who want the feds to know what they think about speed limiters and electronic on-board recorders are running out of time.

Speed limiter comments due March 27

Petitions requesting the government to require speed limiters to be set at 68 mph on big trucks and not be tampered with are being considered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

NHTSA and FMCSA are requesting comments on the petitions for rulemakings from the American Trucking Association and Road Safe America and a group of nine motor carriers. The petitions request devices that would limit the speed of certain trucks and prohibit owners and operators from adjusting the speed limiting devices.

The notice seeking comments was posted on the Federal Register Jan. 26.

    Will this mandate Canadian trucks driving in the US be governed at 68? :yahoo:

    Nope. It will mandate that Canadian trucks run between the hours of 2100-0400. And at speeds no greater than 57mph. Daylight hours will be reserved for U.S based trucking companies.

    The US drivers need to stay out of our speedy way so we can gain some momentum, especially around the hills!! :rolllaugh:
