Interesting Idea
« on: October 06, 2016, 07:13:38 AM »

This device appears to adjust to posted speed limits electronically. While I don't love the idea of mandatory limiters at all, I feel like if this is what I am thinking, it may be somewhat better, at least allowing trucks to go at the posted limit, which is usually 65-70 on most major US interstates, therefore keeping up with traffic vs. being a rolling roadblock.

The Ontario govt specifically forbade these when speed limiters came in.

Wait until you have to drive across most of Ontario at 55, LOL.

I went into the office begging for 67 MPH... no comprende' sez management. Maybe after January 1 after fuel mileage is reviewed. That leaves me out... no APU... no Espar heater... non operating bunk door.

So when I go back to work in November (assuming my new knee is healed) i'll be the red/white KW blocking the right lane.
