    Prime treats drivers like kids! The speed limit is 70 mph on the interstate...

    Let's just say I have a lot of experience driving trucks. Since about 1973 been hauling freight. Been everywhere in the USA....spent a lot of time on the road away from a "regular job"....and even helped out a lot of guys out there who got stuck with a broken truck. But then, I have net a few ones that comes along and cant teach them the truth....they must to learn it the hard way.

    Adios Amigo!

    Where you think your gonna go in the left lane? Everyone is waiting for the 4-wheeler to pass the big truck. They are using it a a reference so they can diddle with the cell phone or are too afraid to pass. Your stuck anyway. :D

    Most of the guys have less than a year or 2 of experience, and are new drivers, and you want them to do 70 MPH or higher on the Interstate. Give me a break. in a 40 ton vehicle no less, that stops in 600 feet loaded.
    They have to get experience somewhere and doing 55 gives them that.
    That would be like giving a 16 year old the keys to your POV after drivers safety class and getting their license and saying "oh go do 75 MPH on the interstate".
    Personally I think all new drivers should have governers on their trucks for the 1st 5 years, so they can gain some experience, before they can put their Big boy pants on.
    I think due to the nbr of Truck related accidents we drivers are going to see mandated speed limiters and anti collision devices. Granted, ALOT of the accidents are caused by/due to 4 wheeleers, but take a look at most pile-ups on the freeways, you will find Big rigs right in the middle.

    Still we get them here in NV on I-80 that run off the road, no reason at all, or maybe dodging a coyote. If your experienced then you deserve to run hard and fast. You would know not try an dodge a coyote or even a deer. Less experienced drives will try and dodge them.

    Just because a vehicle is capable of going a certain speed doesn't mean you HAVE to go that speed. Just because a place has a certain speed limit doesn't mean you HAVE to go that speed.


    Example, some places is Texas has a speed limit of 85mph. Would you REALLY feel comfortable driving a 70' long 80,000 lb articulated pinto at 85mph in potentially windy conditions.

    If you really want a driving and delivery job where you can freely drive as fast as your vehicle allows; you need to get a pizza delivery job.
