Proposed law would see lower speed limits for large trucks
Louisiana is a large state with a great variety of roadways that can make it very difficult for commercial truck drivers to maintain safety behind the wheel. Fortunately, Louisiana lawmakers take the dangers of commercial vehicle accidents very seriously, and regularly examine the law to find ways it might be altered to save lives.
A recent bill introduced to the state legislature proposed altering speed limits in several areas to compel commercial truck drivers to maintain lower speeds than traditional drivers. The bill proposes a 10-mile per hour decrease in commercial vehicle speed limits on rural interstates and urban interstates.
