Attorney Laird Lucas questioned how ITD motor vehicles chief Alan Frew could have had wrong information in his memorandum of decision about the speeds at which the Conoco megaloads will travel - and say today essentially that, contrary to what the memorandum says (maximum speed 25 mph, average 15 mph), they can travel as fast as they want. Frew said he erred, and should have gone to the source to get the appropriate speeds - the trucking company, Emmert. “I expect them to maintain a safe speed, whatever that is,” he said.
