Trucks Hauling More Than 80,000 Pounds May Soon Be Allowed on Interstates

Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine proposed new legislation seeking to open interstate highways to trucks carrying larger loads. The legislation will allow trucks with six-axles weighing up to 100,000 pounds to use interstate highways. Snowe explained that current federal restrictions on interstate highways are an example of bureaucratic regulations causing "safety hazards on secondary roads" and increased risk for trucking accidents.
