How Interstate Speed Limits Influence Your Transport

We don't often consider cross-country trailer speed limits or their potential to hinder smooth moves from pickup to destination when it comes to moving. These are the details that we leave to the moving company. We hope and pray that all our valuables, including our vehicle, will make it to their destination on time.

Move Car believes that happy customer makes them more productive. Let's take a look at interstate speed limits and trailers, and how they can impact your move as well as your transit time.

Speed Limit

AAA lists the trailer speed for Illinois as "N/A." But this is not because Illinoisans lack determination. There are major speed law changes in the future. The Illinois State Senate passed a bill increasing the speed of interstate highways from 55 mph to 70 mph.

The Illinois State Police website states that 65 mph is the maximum speed limit for house-cars, campers, private living coaches, recreational vehicles, vehicles towing other vehicles, and vehicles of the second category designed or used to carry a gross weight greater than 8,001 pounds.

This increase, if passed by the House, would put Illinois at the interstate speed rate with thirty other states including Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, and Iowa.
