The Federal-Aid Highway Amendments of 1974 was signed into law by President of the United States Gerald Ford on January 4, 1975.[1] Among other changes, the law permanently implemented a national 55-mph speed limit (which had already been a temporary limit) for the Interstate Highway System. It also established the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula as law, which governed the weight-to-length ratio of trucks in order to protect highway bridges and infrastructure.
