I had a 2010 Chevy suburban 1500 for work that was limited (governed) at 98. Hit it all the time.

I agree with the speed limits proposed, all of the proposed ones. People say the truck speeds will not work with 80 (or 85) mph speed limit's. It will and does. Trucks in California have a speed limit of 55 and some places here are 70. 15 mph speed differences are no big deal when the heavies are in the right lanes.

Bottom line is that I would much rather be hit from behind by a big rig at 68 (62 or 58) than 70 or 75. Tonnage and lug nuts ALWAYS win and the laws of physics always are true.

Autonomous Trucks

We are rushing headlong into a future where there will no longer be drivers in commercial vehicles and the shippers will then have complete control of their vehicles, until the computer crashes. What started as a DARPA project, now being tested by the military for their supply vehicles, is making its way into the commercial realm.

Have you looked around you in traffic currently? There are LOTS of driverless vehicles as the actual drivers are texting, eating, talking on the phone, talking on the phone while eating, checking their iPod music, etc. With the computer doing some driving at least someone is trying to stay on the road without hitting me!

Absolutely, positively correct!!! After years of driving L.A. freeways, I have ceased to be surprised by what people will do while driving. Bring on the computers.
