    Hey if you don't care pat line up behind shaffer so i can pass yall both at the same time......Lol, just kidding dude but at least you got to see past 63 for a little while. Maybe it will be a while before you're due in for service and you can stretch it out a little longer.
     
    panhandlepat Thanks this.

    Sounds like a pay cut to me... your now going to lose 25 to 50 miles a day multiply that by 7 and you have lost that many miles a week just by cutting the truck down. I really hate it for you. it should be illegal for a carrier to not be able to run the speed limit.

    being that usually ALL available hours aren't used i see it more as a cut in "free time"
