Nighttime speed limit permanent

The 55 mile per hour nighttime speed limit applies to all areas statewide from half an hour after sunset to half an hour before sunrise.

"During past snowmobile seasons a high percentage of our fatal accidents occurred at night and were speed related. During the four years of the temporary nighttime speed limit, our fatality rate has steadily dropped, despite having some excellent snow conditions. It's a proven fact that night time speeds over 55 mph greatly reduced your ability to react in time to avoid a collision with a fixed object," states Gary Eddy, Snowmobile Administrator for the Department of Natural Resources. The speed limit will assist law enforcement with addressing unsafe night operation and will hopefully continue to reduce nighttime crashes which all too often results in injury accidents or fatalities.
