New Speed Limiting Device Being Suggested

The US is trying to pass a law that would put an electronic device on all vehicles over 28,000lbs to limit the speed to 65 mph. It says all New Vehicles, but didn't limit it to commercial vehicles. I wonder if the Dynamax's of the future will be limited to 65mph?

I can't think of any pleasant comment regarding this rule or anything else from the commissars.

Couldn't they just require that all drivers be married?

It'd accomplish the same thing.................

Wait until we all have "autonomous" vehicles. You'll only go as fast as the gov't's computers will let you.

Is that from the 2500 up or does it include the 1500's as well?

Most new vehicles are speed limited, a little less, than the speed rating of the tires installed at the factory.

But limiting trucks is ludicrous, they are better off taking bad truck drivers off the street. In states where the trucks are supposed to go 10 under, it can cause more problems when the truck takes twenty miles to pass another truck and they tie up the left lane.

As for the possible new regulation; it sucks just like most idiotic gov't regs.
