Learning from others: an international study on heavy truck limiters

The aim of the international assessment is to document the experiences of three participating jurisdictions, which have had mandated heavy vehicle speed limiters for more than 10 years, and to draw parallels with the Canadian context, highlighting issues, concerns, and best practises that could inform policy decisions with respect to the Canadian speed limiter requirement. At the time of writing this report, 33 countries were found to have heavy vehicle speed limiter legislation, most of which, like the United Kingdom and Sweden, are European Union member states, obliged by international law to implement European Commission legislation, such as the directives relating to speed limiters. Other countries with speed limiter legislation include Japan, Zambia, and most recently, India, which is implementing speed limiter regulations for Karnataka state and is considering a nation-wide speed limiter policy.
