The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is trying out a new pilot program to help prevent interstate backups during winter storms.

They have come up with a plan to keep trucks in the right lane only, once a 45-mile-per-hour speed restriction has been put into effect. They will also reserve the right to ban all truck traffic on the interstates during big storms. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation hopes the new restriction will keep things moving and keep everyone safe while driving on the interstates.
