TORONTO, Ont. — Ontario is moving ahead with a controversial plan to mechanically limit truck speeds in the province to 105 km/h, according to a report by the Canadian Press.
Ontario Transport Minister Donna Cansfield said her department is yielding to pressure from the Ontario Trucking Association to implement mandatory speed limiters.
The government agrees with an OTA proposal that cites improved safety and a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as reasons for the new law.
