Snowmobilers around the state will have to slow down next winter, at least at night.
Governor Doyle signed legislation setting a 55 mph nighttime speed limit for snowmobiles starting next winter.
Supporters, including the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs hope it'll reduce crashes and fatalities.
The state snowmobile education administrator has said a nighttime speed limit would make it easier for wardens to pull over riders they suspect are intoxicated.
