The California Highway Patrol (CHP) ticketed a truck driver for violating the truck speed limit by almost 40 m.p.h.

“That’s a bit fast! Yesterday Officer Brann stopped a big rig traveling at 94 mph on I-5 while loaded with 44,000 pounds of merchandise. The maximum speed limit for commercial vehicles and those towing trailers is 55 mph. We appreciate all that commercial drivers do, but please do it safely.“
