Trucker Speed Limits

New legislation (Public Act 455 of 2016) has been approved by the governor and enacted into law on January 5, 2017.  The act amends the Michigan Vehicle Code, section 257.627, permitting a truck, a truck-tractor, or a truck-tractor with a semi-trailer or trailer to operate at a speed not to exceed 65 mph on a freeway, where the posted speed limit is greater than 65 miles per hour.  This amendatory act takes effect immediately.
