    Are you for real ?

    Next time you wonder what is wrong with trucking these days look no further than the mirror. Effin internet rambos replaced the CB rambo a long time ago i guess. Nobody is impressed with the speed of your truck around here dopey. Maybe take that stupid sig pic and read it to yourself a hundred times.

    There is a saying "Exception to the rule" which would probably apply. Tommy Castro even has a good song with that title. Congrats on the upcoming new addition to your family.

    For the short time I drove, I was in a truck that was governed to 62 on the throttle, 65 on cruise. I never was worried about getting pulled over for not keeping with the flow. Big rigs aren't expected to keep with the flow. The school I came through taught us that we should be seeing cars pulling away from us, not cruising with the flow. Too many idiots on the road to try to keep up with em, let em get some distance and be a problem to someone else.

    Pretty sure we're allowed in the far left to pass, just can't cruise there. I know I used it on occasion and plenty of guys in faster trucks used it to pass me. Coming through cities, the far right lane is too unsafe with all the traffic constantly entering and exiting.

    I don't even mind. I hit that left lane, run by at 70, and get back over and on down the road. Fek em.

    Trooper don't know the law. Exemption is written right into it and any judge would laugh him out of court if he dared write you for it.

    I was going to chime in with something about not worrying about the flow of traffic and just travel at the safest rate of speed (which, incidentally, is becoming more often than not, slower than the flow of traffic) but you beat me to it. Touche'!
