The agency said it will weigh setting speed limits at 60, 65 or 68 miles per hour for heavy commercial vehicles, but will consider other speeds based on comments from the public. Speed limits on interstate highways vary across the United States, with some states allowing vehicles to drive as fast as 85 miles (137 km) per hour, though many states have lower maximum speeds for trucks.
Great, trucks going 20 MPH slower will make the interstates much safer. Idiot.
% of accidents/deaths from vehicles traveling 85+ ... 0.0000000001% I would guess.
And,as it has been noted recently on the forum, many states don't have max. speed limits.
