"Rush Trucking"

Last night coming back from downstate, I was going 50 in a 55 with nearly nobody else on the road. An 18 wheeler came up like he was going to rear end me, then hung on for a minute then blew past and was out of sight in no time. I happened to see the back of the trailer "Rush Trucking". Ain't that the truth. No false advertising there.

I am VERY happy to hear that trucks in Ontario now have 105km/h speed limiters! In the past, all the ontario plated trucks would do 115, all the quebec plated trucks would do 120, and all the American plated trucks would do 125-140. I'm looking forward to the day when the gov't decides that all cars should be limited... that'd be the day when they decide they don't need ticket revenues anymore.

My dad has owned a trucking company for 30 years and they have LONG used a 95-100km/h limiter on their trucks. They won the Ontario Safe Trucking award in 99 (i think).
