    Did they change the excess speed setting on your peoplenet? 20 miles of 69 mph every day is gonna hurt your score. My TM might cry.

    Don't think they've changed it yet but I'm sure it's coming once they get everybody turned up.

    To be honest. I very seldom look at my score. I never hear nothing about it. The last time I looked was before Christmas. I think our terminal is just happy to have everyone show up for work.

    Drove a truck yesterday had cruise on 67 hit the gas twice and it was still pulling at 85 mph. I guess they wasn't joking about passing gear lol.

    We have a new KW twin that does the same. Cruise set, hit the go pedal twice, and away it goes. Boost climbs all the way to 30psi and stays there til you let up.

    I think you can turn the speed warning off in the settings menu. Also they will go off if you cross over or under a slower posted speed road.

    The thing about the freightshakers, if ya sit all the way back with in steering wheel all the way up. You can't see the speedometer with that big center in the middle of the wheel. The freightshakers have a longer wheelbase and have the best ride IMO. It's easy to get rolling down a hill without realizing your speeding, especially with new rubbers all the way around. Several of our braking systems have been disabled. Those trucks tend to roll. I see very few ltl drivers if any out my left window.

    Anyone else enjoying the hell out of that passing gear? It's made my days go a lot smoother not having to fight those stubborn ass Conway/Fedex/Werner etc drivers.

    Remember the old saying "Do onto others before they do onto you".

    What were they supposed to do, let off until you got by? They would never get to where they were going if that were the case!

    I was thinking everyone should get my app called" when to stay off the road I'm on ". It's free. Also get the app called " I don't need you to flash bright lights when I'm passing, to get over."

    That's what I do if I see someone struggling to pass me. I get where I'm going just fine.

    These apps would also go great with the "Why I'm driving on the rumble strips" and the accompanying app " How to dim/aim your g*d d@&m headlights".

    Same here.If they can run me down,they can have it.I would rather be behind someone than having someone run beside me for 20 miles..

    And imagine this, the guy that's been stubborn and running side by side with you for twenty miles causes you to be a victim of road rage in some cases. If you're ever being the stubborn guy, just remember if the truck in front of you gets brake checked, you're gonna eat his rear bumper for lunch.

    Dont know why anyone would hold a faster truck in the left lane and allow traffic to congest around them.Not suggesting slamming on the brakes to let them pass but easing out of it for several seconds will help us both out.
