I read your magazine every month and I enjoy it very much. I have had a Class 1 licence for 44 years and I have taught HET apprenticeship for 25 years. I think that speed limiters should be adopted Canada-wide. The large carriers understand how many millions can be saved by dropping speeds from 120 km/h to 105 km/h, and the resulting massive decrease in tire wear.
Owner/operators need an education campaign so that they can help their bottom line! I am tired of being passed by 20-year-olds with two weeks’ training in a driving school and they are doing 140 km/h on the QE2 in a loaded B-train between Calgary and Edmonton!
