Speed limit changes approved, pursued in seven states

The pursuit of changes to speed limit rules are underway at statehouses from Montana to West Virginia. Legislators in multiple states are pursuing the elimination of speed limit differentials for cars and trucks, while legislation in two other states would introduce differentials.

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association says roadways are safest when all vehicles are allowed to travel at the same rate of speed. The Association does not advocate for a specific speed limit.
