DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AK92 Publication ID: Fall 2015 
Title: +Heavy Vehicle Speed Limiters 
Abstract:

This rulemaking would respond to petitions from ATA and Roadsafe America to require the installation of speed limiting devices on heavy trucks. In response to the petitions, NHTSA requested public comment on the subject and received thousands of comments supporting the petitioner's request. Based on the available safety data and the ancillary benefit of reduced fuel consumption, this rulemaking would consider a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard that would require the installation of speed limiting devices on heavy trucks. We believe this rule would have minimal cost, as all heavy trucks already have these devices installed, although some vehicles do not have the limit set. This rule would decrease the estimated 1,115 fatal crashes annually involving vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of over 11,793.4 kg (26,000 lbs) on roads with posted speed limits of 55 mph or above.
