Now that fuel costs have gone down, will Prime trucks go faster than 57 now?

    All the ridiculous stickers and accessories, usually.

    Apparently I'm very wrong about the speeds though.

    You're absolutely right, there are minimum speed limits on interstates, depending on the state it's usually between 45 and 55 mph. Which means that anyone (not just Prime) is perfectly legal running at 57 mph. Don't like it, write your congressman, because they're doing nothing wrong.

    I tell you what if you are going under 75 mph on I-75 in SW Florida you are either going to get ran down or cause a huge backup and unsafe passing conditions.

    Even the semis around here are running no less than 70 mph down 75 most peolpe are running 80 -85 with some semis running 75.

    Lead - Move - or get out of the way

    Under the law, it is incumbent on faster vehicles to safely pass slower vehicles. Plan on getting the crap sued out of you if you rear-end another vehicle.

    I don't run 57. Odd numbers are bad luck. 56 all day.

    55 is the min on some interstate hwy..How can someone set at 57 keep a constant speed at 57 .. Against the laws of Physics... Einstein..... That's what you probably hope someone does is rearend you so you can get out of a truck, but don't care if a family rearends you because your don't care..

    Just seen one of your top professional drivers today wipe out 3 autos because they were try to get around him.. Not trucks autos... He didn't even back off so they could pass him safely on a 70 mph two lane hwy.. Feel Real bad for their families because could of been prevented.. I was behind the autos waiting my turn, when your buddy wouldn't even let them pass.. Had a almost mile backup waiting to go around him.. Feeling bad for their familys.. Just think if it was yours next time...!!!!!!
