As part of an evaluation of a national increase in the heavy vehicle speed limit to 90 km/h from 1 January 1987, an attitude survey of 453 drivers and 90 operators of heavy vehicles was undertaken in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland in June and July 1987. Current speed of travel is around 100 km/h and is influenced by route based factors rather than speed limit. A heavy vehicle speed limit of 100 km/h is preferred, for safety reasons.
