Safety implications of mandated truck speed limiters on Canadian highways

The basic aim of this study is to assess the safety implications of mandating speed limiters for large trucks (weight greater than 11,794 kg) in Canada for different maximum speeds including the 105 km/h threshold suggested by the recent Ontario and Quebec legislation. The term "safety" in this report encompasses both the expected frequency of crashes and their severity when large.
