You should be glad they only have limited the speed limited and are not enforcing real life rules. Did you know it's forbidden to drive commercial trucks on Sundays and (regional) holidays in Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy? 

In The Netherland it's forbidden to use your beacon while not hauling an oversized load. 

.

Also other ETS2 in-game police rules like speed/red light traffic cams are still disabled. You can even disable the fatigue simulation..

BTW: Technically you are required to follow the speed limited. There are very few places in Europe where a truck is allowed 90 kph..

 

Visit a website like http://www.transportsfriend.org/int/country-germany.htmlto get some sense of the restrictions laid upon a real truck driver. And each country has it's own restrictions on top of the restrictions set by the EU.

Generally in the UK, lorries over a laden weight of 7500 kg are mechanically or electronically speed-limited to 56 mph (90 km/h) because of overriding European law, even on motorways where they are legally permitted (under UK law) to travel at 60 mph. Some heavier machines are further limited to 53  (85 km/h) for the same reasons, and carry warning plates to this effect. Some lorries or trucks between a laden weight of 3500 kg and 7500 kg are also speed-limited to 56 mph (90 km/h) on all roads. On non-motorway roads, heavier trucks are legally limited to 40 (single-carriageway) or 50 (dual carriageway) mph (64 and 80 km/h), medium trucks and buses/commercial van-based minibuses to 50 and 60 mph (80 and 97 km/h), though the latter are further divided by being allowed to respectively travel at 60 and 70 mph on motorways (97 and 113 km/h). Light commercial vans are subject to the same 60/70/70 mph limits as private cars and motorcycles, and towing cycles/cars/vans subject to medium truck 50/60/60 limits.
