Commercial trucking companies should be required to install speed-capping technology in all vehicles in their fleets, said U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Oct. 16. He called on the U.S. Department of Transportation to approve a proposed rule that would require the installation of devices to set maximum speeds for vehicles that weigh more than 26,000 pounds. Schumer also advised that drivers limit their speed to 65 mph. The rule was initially proposed in August by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
