    Just got the message that starting September fourth all dcs trucks will be increased to 65 only on cruise control speed when taken in for service. Drivers with 2 million safe miles will be increased to 67.

    Never did feel like a real trucker being stuck at 62, still won't really but this should at least lessen the 62 vs. 61.5 truck fighting incidents.

    I have read O/O's running at 57/58, so they aren't blowing $$$$$ out of there stacks.
    Are they not real truckers ?

    Since neither you or those o/o's you are talking about cannot make the deliveries on time then No, you are all nothing but glorified steering wheel holders.

    I have to wait until my next B service to get the upgrade. It really doesn't affect me because I never use cruise control. Plus here in the northeast I am usually in stop and go traffic.lol.

    Glorified? So that's at least better than a regular steering wheel holder. Right on.

    A Bug is one of those drivers whom holds you verbally hostage talking about himself like he's a god while you're trying to eat dinner at the iron skillet. Best to avoid eye contact.

    Btw, it's not just DCS. It's company wide.
