bill introduced earlier this month in the Oklahoma Senate
seeks to slow down big rigs on state roadways.
the measure, sponsored by state Sen. James Williamson (R-Tulsa),
trucks would be required to travel 10 mph below the posted
limit on state roadways. SB331 also prohibits tractor-trailers
from driving in a highway’s left lane.
truck-tractor may be driven in the left lane only when overtaking
and passing another vehicle … in the same direction, when
the truck-tractor does not impede traffic, and passing can
be completed within one mile,” Williamson wrote.
