Insurance companies could also come down hard on violators by raising their rates and or dropping them all together.

Which just means owner/operators would keep the older, less efficient versions (without limiters). Company drivers would be the main ones affected.

The sad thing is the government structure that earns its keep by citing truckers would be threatened, and looking for alternative funding.
