    Soo... Mandatory speed limeter at 60 MPH for all truckers should be no problem then right? I mean it's for "our on safety"...

    No. It's for the public's safety. Sadly. It's probably the only way to get the super Truckers to stop speeding and tailgating. But 60 or 70. You'll still get there in the same time frame.

    Once a year? How often do one of these "me me me" steering wheel holders make it hard on you per year?
    Besides, My ELD will show without a doubt, I was in DFW or Nashville or Ft Smith, Ar at that date & time.... cant be two places at one time. That's an easy fix. These inconsiderate drivers... is not so easily fixed. I'm still glad to see them hand out those $300 tickets to these idiots.
    I have this little saying that I got from my of fire chief many years ago. "Until the law gets tougher than the law breaker, there's always gonna be crime."
    Until these guys start getting some of the trouble they give me... they're always gonna be giving me trouble.

    If you can't do your job by legally following the laws, you need to find another line of work. If you have to exceed the speed limit, use lanes other than authorized, or ride another vehicle's rear bumper to try to force them to violate the law you are breaking, you have a serious problem. It is just a matter of time, but it will bite you eventually.
    The laws are not there to penalize you, they are there for the public's safety.

    All the toll letters had pictures of trucks other than mine.
    The plates were unreadable on the pics they sent.

    Just had one back in February from Florida. I haven’t been to Florida in ten years.
    The solution isn’t as easy as you think. I called Florida sun pass and had a estimated hold time of 13hrs. I sent a email to the address provided and got a late payment invoice the same day they answered the email.
    Back in 2016 Ny and Md threatened to have my plates put on hold.
