    You keep telling yourself that especially up where the fedex truck crossed the median and stuck the bus taking the high school kids to the colleges up north. A driver showed me his ticket for doing 58 recently. The days of 60 are long gone

    I set it on 58 to 59 out there, 55 is too low on my rpms and I end up shifting a lot.
    Does Scotty work for Prime?

    From the way it sounds on another thread he can't make it as an O/O making $1.50 a mile so he is "being forced" back into leasing. He was previously with Swift not sure if that's his destination or Prime?

    California is in the business of saving the planet. Everyone who drives a truck can see that they are trying their best to convert all big rigs to clean emissions.

    Lower speed limit in California also does other good things. It forces truck drivers to get better fuel economy which translates into fewer carbon emissions polluting the world.

    So what they need to do is come up with a law that if you want to come to California your truck must be governed to 55, everywhere not just flip a switch when you cross into Cali. It would be like the DEF/DPF requirement now, must have it to enter the state.

    I'll just hire Perry Mason. Paul Drake will show up in the T-bird and get the dirt on the cop, and maybe even the judge.
    Case dismissed.

    Ok here goes. I always encourage everyone to go to court and plea not guilty. The worst that can happen is you pay the original fine. Now where you messed up is openly admitted speeding and how to beat it by reasonable doubt. Well you just flat out lied in some sort so there goes any reasonable doubt other members will hold. Why was you just not satisfied with having your day in court. Also who declares CHP the best?

    I keep it around 60 during the day. I run flat out at night between needles and Barstow.
    It depends on the officer; luck of the draw. I passed a truck just outside Barstow. When I moved back over I had CHP right on my butt and was doing just under 65. Heart skipped a beat when I saw him but he just drove right by.

    CHP is the best at writing tickets, don't you think?
