Could new speed limitations make trucks safer?

An interesting idea has been floated by U.S. lawmakers to try to curb the number of truck accidents on American roadways. The idea is to pass a law that would force trucks and trucking companies to install devices on their vehicles that would prevent these large vehicles from traveling faster than a certain speed. The specifics haven't been announced yet for the proposal, but the report says that lawmakers have considered 60, 65 and 68 miles per hour. If approved, truck drivers would be physically unable from making their trucks travel faster than the speed lawmakers decide on.

A car accident is a traumatic experience, and even if you only have minor injuries, you may suffer symptoms related to the crash for a long time after the incident. Some injuries are obvious, such as broken bones, cuts and bruises. However, you may have suffered an injury that remained hidden for some time before it began causing you trouble.
