    Can't wait to see the OSOD and his pilots leading a pack of 500 trucks all doing 65, and no one can pass him lmfao.

    And anyone with a pulse can see how idealistic dreams work out when thrust into reality.

    Look around. It's everywhere around you right now.

    He was gone for two months on paternity leave and no one even noticed.

    That guy is no key player.

    Why would you insult a tire like that?

    They're called bottleneckers. That's large, established businesses lobbying government for more regulations in order to make business more difficult and/or expensive for emerging competitors. Why does someone need a license to braid hair? They call it consumer protection but the one who lobbies for it is the one who benefits. It wasn't the consumers calling for that. It was the beauticians at the state house demanding licensing in their field. Now one might argue that the professionals in their industry would know best how to protect their consumers but that's not what they say when they're at the state house. They ask for protection for themselves from what they call "unfair competition". What is unfair competition? It's anyone who is willing to do the job for a lower price. In this case the ATA is calling for "leveling the playing field" outright stating their intent yet it still gets passed under the guise of safety.

    I'm already averaging 12-13 hours a day. I dont get paid by the hour. Are they trying to give is all a reason to quit? All because some manchild thinks it's a good idea. He is incompetent

    At least a tire has a use.

    Both of the responses I got were almost identical, with neither one of them even mentioning speed limiters in their response. The one that mentioned gun control was from.....Mitt Romney, my letter to him was regarding speed limiters and I get a response about gun control.
