    A BUG, if anyone is a steering wheel holder it’s you guys that for work these slow companies, sorry that my truck can do greater than 67 mph and it’s also a automatic truck ‍♂️, sorry my boss trusts me and our other drivers to drive the speed limit or greater (70-75mph), sorry my boss doesn’t buy into the slower speeds are safer and it saves fuel bs so go ahead and think your better now that you can do 65 I’ll still be passing you and your co works everyday.

    I hope you're getting paid at least $0.65 a mile with accessory charges.

    This thread sure is old. I am greatly surprised they've not closed it. Actually, the trucks are governed at 66 on the cruise. Yes, we have Bendix on the front bumper on all equipment. Every truck driver in America will cut over right in front of our trucks in less than a second, and the Bendix will beep, and set off a headway. Out of spite. They will deny the allegations, of course. I wouldn't expect integrity here. Other motorist do it as well. It's not only other truck drivers. I have noticed the impatient factor sets in, and we try to pass someone, and someone in front of us slows down in the hammer lane at 62 mph, and we start out in the hammer lane doing 66 mph. The Bendix responds to the vehicle in front of us doing 62 mph, and it kicks back the cruise to 62 mph, and the J.B. Hunt Driver gets the dirty look. I find out that fascinating that they don't understand, and don't think outside the box. After all, it's not rocket science here to figure out what's going on. Most of your bigger carriers have Bendix on the front bumpers, which is designed to avoid a collision.

    I still enjoy listening to the 8th grade mentality of some of these so called truck drivers. My truck is faster than your truck. WOW. Some guys never grow up and your boss/owner knows this. wow.
