    Speed limiter’s will not have done 1 ounce of good with this garbage…

    I won't impact anyone but the Super Truckers that love to tailgate in the hammer lane.

    If it doesn’t happen the Prime drivers might get offended and run 43 mph on the Interstate side by side for 30 miles in protest. :biggrin_25523:

    Won't matter to us as we are already governed at 64.9 ( corporate policy is >65)
    I've long ago adapted...
    And since courtesy in this field has long since left the bldg, I imagine it will become a us against them mentality.
    Trying to pass each other across 4 lanes of highway. Not enough cops to control anything. Gonna be thunderdome out there. Imho

    It won’t. I’ll have the truck governed at whatever speed but have the cruise set at 99 so I can go whatever speed I want. Yes, I have an older truck that can b set that way.

    If the limit is under any current state speed limit. I'll retire from driving.
    Most of the time I set cruise at 64 mph.
    When needed or wanted, I like the option to go faster.

    I'll be parking until the 100 or 200 truck pile ups diminish, and someone goes,"Wow this was a galactically stupid idea."

    Can't wait to see FedEx and ABF and the gas cans.

    One tiny thing goes wrong .......load is late.

    You think if you run 65 now it's not going to effect you. That's cause guys move around you.

    Just wait until they can't.

    The carnage is going to be legendary.

    It won’t make much difference to me but I am still strongly against it. It’s my truck, my fuel and I should be able to use it how I want. And sometimes I need to make time on long trips.
    Most of my work is on two lanes and the little bit of big road that I am on is very lightly traveled so I doubt I will see the ####show that’s going to happen.
