The Trucking Alliance strongly urges the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee to oppose H.R. 3039, also known as the DRIVE Act.

This legislation would stop the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration from proposing a federal safety standard to limit the maximum speed of large commercial trucks in interstate commerce.

This proposal comes at a time of historically high road fatalities, with nearly 43,000 people killed on U.S. roads in 2021, and 12,330 of these deaths involved speeding.

Truck speed limiters produce substantial safety benefits and for that reason, we strongly urge this committee to oppose the DRIVE Act. Read our full letter below.
