COLUMBUS, Ohio — It appears as though trucks will soon be able to travel at the same speed as cars through Ohio, after the Senate approved legislation that would create a single speed limit for all vehicles.
Currently, trucks are limited to 55 mph while cars can travel at 65 mph on Ohio interstates, with the exception of the Ohio Turnpike. Ohio is one of 11 states that currently has split speed limits.
The Ohio Trucking Association began lobbying for uniform speed limits for trucks and cars earlier this year.
Local media reports the increased speed limit for trucks will take effect in 90 days.
