    I don't believe it at all.

    You have a freaking country full of trucks holding everyone up on the freeways at 63, 65 or whatever.

    What I will believe is truckers cutting corners at stop signs, lights and so on to KEEP moving against the big stopwatch tick tick tick tick of the midnight violating like Cinderella.

    Different roads have different speed limits you don't have to be going over 65 to be speeding on some roads

    Trucks are going faster at times where I run. Not all, but more of them and faster than they did a year ago.

    Combination of eld’s and a lot of governed trucks in my opinion. The guy governed at 65 runs 50 in a 45 through town and the guy governed at 67 gets popped for going 55 in town trying to pass him.

    A lot of locals are speeding because of a lack of enforcement, I was passed by a train on 23 while doing 79. He has to be 10 over of what I was doing.

    Wrong again. Everyone is speeding BECAUSE of eld's. Racing the clock. The Mega's are the worst . They never let off of it no matter what. School zone , work zone running stop lights you name it . I've seen more of that crap going on since eld's than ever before.
     
    D.Tibbitt, Tall Mike, stwik and 4 others Thank this.

    Sorry, but no. People are speeding because they are poor at their jobs. There is no other reason. It's not like the ELD is pushing the fuel peddle down.
