2012 Truck Speed Limits Map

I've updated my map of truck speed limits for 2012. I find it amazing that no one else posts maps like these to let commercial drivers know in a quick and easy fashion what the speed limits are, and in fact, it's darn near impossible to find this information even in list form.

A couple notes about the map:

* I have not personally been to every state this year, and so have been forced to rely on others for information.

* The Ohio Toll road allows 70 mph.

* The western counties of Texas allow 80 mph, thus allowing you to travel more than half of I-10 and about a hundred miles or so of I-20 at high speed. Texas is considering allowing 85 in some areas, but it was unclear to me where they would be.

* Portions of central Utah allow 80 mph, but these are small portions.

* I do not drive a truck in Alaska or Hawaii, so I won't be tracking their speed limits, but IIRC they are 60 mph. Same for Canada. I cannot say anything at all about Mexico.

* Though Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan have shown a modicum of sense in raising their speed limits to sane(r) levels in the past couple years, they (and Tennessee) still maintain dangerously low limits for trucks around cities while still permitting cars to go fast. Be careful in these areas, and in the Pacific states, which have even higher speed differentials.

* North Carolina has large swaths of 65 mph limits.

Here you go! Keep the greasy side down!
