Heavy Vehicle Speed Limiters – What You Need to Know

Heavy Vehicle Speed LimitersThe Trump administration has recently come out and said that they won’t pursue heavy vehicle speed limiters.

Now, this probably doesn’t mean much to most people without context, and that’s fine. But the FMCSA and other regulatory bodies proposed a rule that would install speed limiters in various heavy vehicles, including car shipping trucks. This is something that the federal government has proposed several times over several different presidents. However, the proposal has been tabled, at least for now. However, the Senate Appropriations Committee has said that the FMCSA and the NHTSA have to “fully and expeditiously address all public comments.”

What are heavy vehicle speed limiters?

Heavy vehicle speed limiters are pretty much what they sound like – devices that limit a truck’s speed. And on the one hand, these aren’t necessarily bad things. Truckers are supposed to obey all speed limits, just like us citizens, but do they? Reports say that many do not. Many companies penalize truckers for shipments that arrive late, but there’s issues with that. For instance, carriers can’t predict traffic – they can try, but you never know when a jam is going to happen. This can put a dent in their travel times, and is a cause for late deliveries. Essentially, they get punished for things that aren’t their fault.

Speed limiters, though, are also a good safety net. Trucks that are traveling too fast have a longer stopping distance and put more strain on their brakes. This can cause brake failure, which can lead to accidents. Heavy vehicle speed limiters can make the roads safer for everyone traveling on them.

How would heavy vehicle speed limiters affect auto shippers?

Well, as mentioned above, they could theoretically increase transit times for car shippers. If a carrier is used to going a certain speed, and then you make it to where they have to travel at a lower speed, it’s going to increase the amount of time it takes to get from one place to another. This could have numerous impacts including increased prices alongside increased wait times for pickup, transit and delivery. It could also put further strain on a driver, given that they already have to jump through a lot of hoops.

Is tabling the heavy vehicle speed limiter requirement a good thing? This blogger really isn’t sure. There are a lot of ramifications for both implementation and for tabling the issue, so it’s not really so black and white right now. But for now, they’re tabled, which means that the industry isn’t going to be changing any time soon. So we wouldn’t worry about it right now.
