The State of Alaska does not have a special inclement speed limit.  We
do have a too fast for conditions citation that is issued in the event
of a VID or accident.

Subject: Inclement weather speed limit reductions

The Washington State DOT is interested in information on the following:

1) Are there any states that decrease the posted speed limit in the
event of 
inclement weather (snow and ice in particular) and if so how is that 
accomplished? Is the speed limit decrease applied to specific road
only or can it be incorporated across a state's entire highway system?
for related information for all traffic in general and freight trucks in

2) Are there any urban areas that issue chain requirements for freight
during snow/ice conditions?

Thank you for any input.
