ATA wants brakes put on speed limiter proposal

ARLINGTON, VA - The American Trucking Associations (ATA) says it continues to hold a "pro-safety policy" regarding speed limiters, but it is raising concerns about a proposal to mandate the technology in the U.S. "Despite ATA's decade-old, pro-safety policy on speed, the new joint rulemaking from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Administration proposes a menu of three speed options for commercial trucks, not one," said Chris Spear, ATA president and CEO. "It provides insufficient data, and fails to make a recommendation regarding which of the three proposed speeds it believes is best and why. "
