Do trucks need speed limiters? The debate continues

TodaysTrucking.com features a story on the controversy over mandatory speed limiters on trucks.

At issue is federal mandate to cap truck engine speeds at 68 mph, using mechanical speed limiters to enforce the limit.

While there is support for speed limiters from safety advocates, opponents say it will unfairly penalize all truckers.

What do you think? Would speed limiters make trucks safer? Leave a comment and tell us you story.
