FREDERICTON, N.B. — New Brunswick is taking a close look at implementing speed limiter legislation for heavy trucks, but it’s in no rush to do so according to a report in local media.
“It’s certainly not on our legislative calendar this session,” Public Safety Minister John Foran told local newspaper, the Times & Transcript. However, officials did say they’re considering implementing speed limiter legislation and that they’ll be keeping a close eye on how it plays out in Ontario and Quebec, where truck speeds are already capped at 105 km/h.
“We’ll be keeping (up) strong communication from those areas and we’ll get more evaluations and go forward from there when New Brunswick has to make a decision,” Foran told the Times & Transcript.
Unlike in Ontario and Quebec, some New Brunswick highways have speed limits of 110 km/h.
