    Well there is a few who make all look bad. And the ones who think we all are bad are blind to the truth.

    As for Governing trucks or cars, NO way. I left Company driver for I felt unsafe in a Governed Truck. I had cars passing me on the shoulder. I feel it should be outlaws to goverened Cars or trucks

    How can you have an Ayn Rand quote, and an editorial like you wrote on the same page? I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you aren't really stupid, but just trolling for a rise out of people. I do try to be a peace loving Libertarian myself, but swerving your truck at me is the initiation of force in my book so stand by for my vigorous response at the next stop.

    Easy to do. A survey . Go to safersys.org and compare safety records of O/O only carriers against those with company drivers driving governed trucks
