    Bah "Cullum Owings act" go *blank* yourself

    The truck in question was speeding but so what? It was the cruise control set and driver came up on stopped traffic. Like the kid woulda lived if the truck slammed into their car at 65 on the cruise instead of 70

    I suggest writing your state reps to reject the Bill.

    When the Interstates are all clogged up and cars can't run their posted limits the road rage will run amuck. Fewer people killed at 65vs70? Fewer people killed at 35vs65.... I am thinking that we might as well just go ahead and ban trucks while we are defunding the police - problem solved....

    I would support those <deleted> from black smoke matters if they did rolling roadblocks to protest this. I would doubly support them if they did it in states whose reps support this law.
     
    Coffey, w9l and TheLoadOut Thank this.
