    image.jpg Looks like as of August 28, 2017 all FedEx Ground Contractor's must govern their trucks to 65 mph nationwide.

    This company sucks more rubber donga every day.

    Just more time out on the road, more time we have to work without getting paid for it.

    Can they get any more oppressive?

    That does suck but at least you're getting plenty of notice before it takes affect.Like logs in due time all companies will be governed at 65 I bet.

    The aggressive driving part is what makes me happy to see this. Watched one yesterday swerve half into another lane at 70 and #### near take out a car.

    I doubt that will curb aggression, will likely make it worse.

    thanks for lumping us all together.

    I've been driving for them for 2 years and 2 months and never had a wreck and I drive the mountains and grades on I-70 and I-80.

    Never been in a ditch or anything.
