Georgia eyes split speed limits

| 2/19/2003

A new bill in Georgia would require trucks to travel 10 mph slower than other vehicles on the state’s interstates.

HB353, introduced Feb. 12 by Rep. Larry Walker, D-Perry, GA, would apply the slower speeds to any truck with more than 6 wheels. Under the bill, the split speed limit would not have to be posted – truckers would be expected to know about the new limits, even without any sign.
