Truck drivers may face lower speed limits

Drivers in Illinois and throughout the country might notice large trucks going more slowly on highways if a proposal by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is enacted. Under the proposal, the speed of vehicles that are newly built and weight more than 26,000 pounds will be limited to 60, 65 or 68 miles per hour.

Professional drivers must follow hours of service laws

A recent out-of-state case related to the trucking industry serves as a valuable reminder. Hours of service regulations are not simply safety recommendations. They are the law. Following those trucking laws is crucial to the prevention of the deadly kind of truck accidents that claim too many lives here in Illinois and across the U.S. every year.
