Comment period extended to July 18
The FMCSA is intent on implementing a speed limiter rulemaking. The proposed rule targets motor carriers operating commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 26,001 pounds or more, whichever is greater, that are equipped with an electronic engine control unit (ECU) capable of governing the maximum speed. The rule states that those CMVs be required to limit their speed (to be determined by the rulemaking) and to maintain that ECU setting for the service life of the vehicle. With this notice of intent, FMCSA requests public comments and data regarding the adjustment or reprogramming of ECUs. The comment period has been extended through July 18. Let your voice be heard.
