An I don't think semis have any business above 100 on any road except maybe #1 west. And if the speed limit is 90 you should be 90 or lower. Someone doing the speed limit isn't a hazard because the majority of people are speeding.
The elogs have gps built in.

Have you had to try stop when someone pulls out in front of you doing 90 compared to 100? The speed limits there for a reason. While 70,000 is light it's still a semi. You own the road your on. I wouldn't let cats dictate my driving habits for the worse. And Hwy 6 north is too rough for anything over 100 loaded. But I own my trucks and trailers. We load up to 9 axle or 150-160,000 lbs. mostly run 6 around 100,000.

Who has proven the 10 less that flow is a hazard? While I would agree I don't agree speeding is solution. Especially in the first part of Ontario. Now if you were to do 10 less than the speed limit I'd say your a hazard.

Just saying... at 90 in ontario, people are taking dangerous chances to get around you.
I have seen 10 or more people lined up, passing on solid lines and up hill. Sure its wrong what they r doing, but at 95 traffic flows alot better.

That's their choice. Your responsible for your own choice. I understand what your saying and their is no shortage of 4 wheelers who don't respect a truck either. It's frustrating especially when your heavy to drive around people that don't know or care about the truck on the road.

I think guys breaking the rules in rigs and cheating there logs are much more dangerous than a guy doing 5k over.
I have seen alot of accidents, caused by guys falling asleep.

These guys fallin asleep are usually larger company drivers like roger Murray or gardwine lol not o/o for the most part. Driving tires is dangerous as well. I had one driver who couldn't drive 3 hours an not nap for 2 hours. Know your limits.


One roger Murray truck flipped a load of steel by st.martin. He was drunk and the 2 other trucks left him because they were also drunk. They caught the other trucks.
