    I still don’t believe this has much to do with safety.
    It’s about control (think mask mandate with limited evidence)
    Further ruining an industry that they don’t want to exist due to the environmental agenda
    And making electric trucks competitive because otherwise they will never be accepted by the industry
    I won’t disagree that reducing speed could increase safety BUT it will only work if everyone is going the same speed
    I also think that generally the driving skills of everyone have declined and I think a lot of it has to do with modern day distractions and the level of automation of vehicles. I think there’s a lot of people driving heavy trucks that shouldn’t be but can and do because it takes very little mechanical aptitude which in my experience usually translates into more aware drivers because they tend to be more in tune with their vehicle.
    just my observations

    Because for some dumb reason it still takes them 3 minutes to speed up into traffic on interstate
