    If only there was a sign telling the driver to stay on 70. Oh wait... Screenshot_20220511-163708~2.png

    It's been said on here before ,and ,I support it 100,%
    A common IQ test needs given before applying to CDL school
    If you don't make 100...no CDL
    if you can't read & speak English....no CDL
    if your not a US citizen... no CDL
    Your IQ must be 120 and you must have 4 years of driving with no accidents or.. your not allowed to train or teach a new driver

    I have a question

    Can you join the military if you can’t speak read and write English?

    I’m guessing no. But if you cannot communicate with those around you then you’re putting them and others in harms way

    So
    Why is running down the rd with 80k any different?
     
    Catmando Thanks this.

    Iq 120 is 9% of the population, and smarter isnt neccessarily better, now out of those people you have to filter down to truck drivers only and then again filter for the people that have 4 years experience, then filter for people that CAN or want to train, then out of those, how many will actually have people skills.

    I dont disagree that standards should be higher, but iq as the first filter is not a good idea.

    Yeah.. I might of over did it at 120.. 105 would probably be enough

    run-a-way ramps "exist" for dummies to park in front of, and go snow boarding or trail riding on them.

    you didn't know that..????

    And the truck that would need to use it would probably end up in jail for killing someone because he was out of control

    i dunno about that. people are where they are not supposed to be. but lawyers being lawyers will certainly make an issue out of it..

    i say have cameras at all ramps and then mail the morons a huge fine/bill well over $5,000.

    let'em fight that in court.....cameras do not lie.......

    just ask the sheep.
