    Find a new carrier or get own authority. I get it's their authority but micro managing 5 over. Just ridiculous if nothing else.

    Why?

    No seriously why? It's their CSA score that gets the ding is it not? If so they have every right to try and keep that score down. It literally costs them money in insurance and lost runs because of high CSA score.

    Any recent accidents involving someone leased on? Their insurance company may be on them, then they on you.

    In a compliance review FMCSA checks speeds right along with the HOS. Maybe someone at the company actually started checking that and found a problem with it. Maybe they think that they're close to an audit. Like it has been said, don't like it, get your own authority. Then all the rules/regulations can go out the window. And it will make great entertainment later if you're caught.

    There doing 57 in a 50 for example..... there is newer gps tech that match’s your position to the speed limit for that spot. And send a email to safety dept to rat you out every time you go 5 over the posted limit.......

    Those are averages, not a burst of speed, so fmcsa won't see a driver passing someone on the log report,

    In European Union such speeds recorded on their tachographs are subjects to fines per their regulations. They can go weeks back and if they find that you were over any speed limit, they will likely issue a ticket. It is not only last 8 days.
