Attention Drivers.

If you haven't heard, the FMCSA and US DOT are getting ready to shove more regulations on drivers, you need to check out the new Hours of Service, Electronic On Board Recorders, Speed Limiters that are all being proposed........

To me, it just makes older vehicles more valuable.

I will NEVER have Big Sister in my home or car... or anything I personally own, for that matter.

I hate to bust your bubble ToMang07 but since the late 90's all vehicals commerical or not have had some type of eobr. The large trucks have a black box from the factory.I've seen in the past several bad wrecks that involved fatality's, were the truck gets impouded and the dot pulls the box to get a conviction .. I'm not for them nor against , I drive hundred thousand plus miles a year, If we did not have them just think of the crap , and the quailty of people we would have driving on the roads. My family gets out there and I would think that drivers would want to know that there is a rested and alert driver driveing when ther family is on the road. I'm just saying my .02cents thanks

Im not hollerin bout the eobr but the speed limiter is retarded how many problems do slow trucks cause on the interstate? ALOT. keep everybody goin the same speed and its less changing lanes and passing and when you get stuck behind a slow truck and you ARE a slow truck you go to pass and hold up EVERYONE behind you while it takes you 10 mins to get around them. Its stupid p!ss on the DOTS and the FMCSA. Some laws are great yes, Im not worried about hours right now because you get plenty of time to drive but some of this stuff is stupid.

I understand what you are saying, and that you are refering to big rigs... but as far as Black box's and such, they are talking about having speed limiters and the box in future private vehicles as well. And Like I said... It aint gonna happen.

I will rip $#!T apart with a torch and a crowbar first... Big Brother/Sister is far overstepping their bounds... and pretty soon people will start to wake up and see that.

It's the insurance companys push the speed limiters. If your truck is able to do more the the highest in your state, and you have a accident they can sue your co. Most of our co. trucks are set at 64 mph because the state speed limit in PA is 65. We are paid by the hr. so it dosn't matter. the speed limiter is part of the factory computer in late 90's and newer trucks.
