Snowmobilers might have to hit the breaks on the trails next winter.
Yesterday, the State Legislature approved a bill that would set a 55 mph speed limit at night.
This as Wisconsin nears an all-time record for snowmobile deaths.
The DNR says 32 snowmobilers died this winter. That’s only seven short of the record 39 deaths in the winter of 1999 to 2000.
The bill now goes to Governor Doyle for his review.
