    Some loads are time sensitive. Fresh fish or produce. Take your time and buy the load when it gets rejected after your late. Hard to do 720 miles in a day at 60 mph legally. Nor is it wise to drive that slow in a 75mph or 80 zone.

    Regional or local hauls. Yep, nice and easy. Makes little difference.

    You can drive 60 mph down the interstate and go stark raving mad all you want. Can't drive 55 isn't just a song to some of us.
