I thought for sure it would have been a lower one when i clicked on this thread. So were rigs limited to 55 before like illinois is? Either way, that is great news!

Rigs were 55 before. I hated driving my trucks. You were allowed to drive 65 when bobtail but DOT didnt like it that much. Now, no worries.

It makes absolutely no sense to limit speed on rigs. I drive myself and i will tell you that the swift, schneider, and many other trucks that are goverened at 62 are a real safety concern. You come up on them so quick and driving them can't be fun, you can never pass anyone. All the canadian trucks come thru minnesota and they are all 62mph trucks, oh they get in the way. Glad to see that another state has finally wisened up.
