TORONTO, Ont. — The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) is meeting with provincial and federal officials on the issue of speed limiters in early April, and is looking for anecdotal reports from truckers.
The US-based owner/operator association wants to hear from American and Canadian drivers who have experienced problems with the speed limiter legislation in Ontario and Quebec. It issued a ‘Call to action’ March 27.
“OOIDA is currently evaluating our options with regard to speed limiter laws. To help us in the evaluation process, we need to gather some information from our members,” the group posted on its Web site.
Specifically, OOIDA is asking: Have you noticed any degradation in highway safety since these regulations were implemented?; have you received a speed limiter citation?; do you know someone that has received a speed limiter citation?; will you continue to haul in Quebec and/or Ontario?; have you refused to travel to Quebec and/or Ontario because of the speed limiter law?; and has the implementation of this law impacted you economically?
