@JangAh that's when you try and make some distance if you can do so safely I hate driving around people because I know what I'm capable of not what others are so I try to give myself distance when possible I don't think it hurts to speed a little to try and make a safer environment for yourself and others while driving I don't know why speed limits are so heavily enforced other than to make money most crashes and issues are caused by people not paying attention, being intoxicated, or being mentally unfit to drive

@geemy yes they do they're called governors they are just set to a lot higher speed in cars and light trucks than on modern semi trucks we have the ability to go 100+ in some cars before they govern out but a lot of modern pickups govern out at 90 even though the speedometer goes to 140 or 120 the companies requiring a 65mph governor on their trucks are ridiculous it doesn't make it any safer

You have to wait until you’re about to go uphill. You should have a pretty good idea of how heavy their load is/ how much power they have available by that point. Rule of thumb: don’t adjust your cruise control and use that as a gauge for whether or not you even need to pass. If they keep catching up to you downhill, 3rd times the charm and at that point you need to just adjust your cruise by 2 mph or so and let them get a good mile ahead before you resume .

As a fellow truck driver who uses a newer version of the same model truck, I'm surprised your fleet doesn't do what I call the 70mph loophole. You basically pump the gas pedal twice and hold on the second pump, and your truck would accelerate to 70mph for a limited amount of time. I think the max is 30 min for every 4 hours on the drive line. Essentially it's designed to make passing truckers driving at variable speeds much easier and a lot faster so you're not impeding the left lane for 2+ minutes.

Yeah, that was one of my big frustrations when I started in trucking. Just remember it's often because the truck is in cruise control mode and will coast on the down slope for fuel economy but, then some drivers don't like to be passed because they know your in the same boat and they will be stuck behind you with your truck running an inconsistent speed. Many companies do pay a bonus for fuel savings so sometimes it's best not to Duke it out in a passing contest unless you really have to. Observe if they slow down on small grades and pass them then if your lighter or your rig has more power.

I drive a water truck all over the east coast and I know EXACTLY how you feel here. When I first started driving truck I figured all truck drivers helped each other like a pact. But that's not the case. Then you have a line of angry drivers build up behind you and ride your bumper. So now you're stuck deciding whether to drag race this truck for miles until the road allows you the opportunity or you slow down and get back behind to allow all the cars behind to go.

But I will give you a little tip that you can use in a company truck... while you're accelerating lightly tap the clutch to wear it lightly disengages but not completely and it will boost your truck up about 2mph for 5 seconds. Or some trucks if you are on cruise control while holding the accelerator down and using then + on cruise control buttons it MAY go up to max speed.

@ComradeGaming The reality is that the extra few minutes you have to wait, can be made up for in your car. Getting held up (even just by a few miles an hour) can add anywhere from an extra 15 minutes to extra hours if both trucks are headed the same way. Because (and this goes for cars in the right lane as well) when we go down a grade too slow, we also go back up really slow. It also burns unnecessary fuel. Right laners just need to let us pass. If you find I'm going too slow AFTER we've been clear of any up-grade or I'm cruising, feel free to pass me. But ease for the love of God don't get in front of me and then slow down. I don't want to go 65 or 62. I want to go 68-75. You want to go 65, but don't want "the big mean ol' truck" in front you. Tough nut. Either speed up or let me pass. But for real. It's the guy in the right lanes fault most of the time, and no, we aren't going to stop passing each other.

Look at you, making stuff up.

Some trucks have a feature called opti-idle. I think that's how it's spelled. The driver sets the temp (some have to guess since it uses the same knob used for the a/c and some don't have any temp labels) and while the inside is around that temp the engine is off. When it gets too hot or cold then the engine auto starts to cool down or heat up the cab. It also monitors the batteries and starts the engine when they get too low. For those wondering what's an apu. Auxiliary Power Unit. It's basically a generator. Not all trucks have them. Another option for if its cold some have a bunk heater. It runs off the batteries to blow warm air in the cab

As a fellow truck driver I want to give you some really good advice. Yes the companies have their trucks limited to 62 63 65 70 whatever. If you drive 5mph slower than your top speed. (For you that would be driving at 60) when you do eventually come up to a truck that's going slower than you. You have 5mph to work with. My truck's limited to 65 but I drive at 55, and trust me there's plenty of trucks to pass even if you're driving 55! It's a lot less stressful not worrying about passing people, just relax and drive and you won't have gray hair in 10 years! Also if your paid by the hour you'll basically be getting paid more 😜

If you both go 65 as a max speed and you know you'd struggle to pass why even bother trying to pass, a lot of truckers do this on our dual carriage ways in the UK, there's only two lanes, the right lane being the passing lane but yet two trucks will be going the same speed for miles, struggling to overtake and causing massive tailbacks of cars stuck behind just to be 1 spot infront.

Gotta love those truckers with an ego. Thankfully, my box truck can reach 75. But It's rare when I have to go that fast on the interstate to pass a trucker with a BIG ego problem. 70 is consistent enough for me. (While I'm here fellow motorists, STOP TAILGATING me when I'm already going the limit, or even 5 over! We're all guilty of breaking the speed limit, but for the love of God for your sake, don't tailgate vehicles bigger than yours. Should they need to hit their brakes in the event of an emergency, you could end up decapitated. Notice how I'm looking out for you rather than myself. You have someone to get home to. Don't let your weak patience be the reason you won'tbe coming home for the holidays.) And to all the responsible truck drivers, Thank you for keeping this country moving.

@Legendary Zodiac it reduces air resistance by like less than .1% which increases your acceleration by that same amount. So you don't have to press as hard on the gas as the guy in front. But it's really only useful in racing(maybe) and with trucking over really long distances. You'd really only see the savings after a whole year of long distance drives.

I used to drive long distances on the interstate highways usually in my f250 diesel pick up. One day I got fairly close to a semis trailer bumper and matched it's speed. What I noticed was my foot almost came off the accelerator pedal and it felt like I was connected to the trailer by a magnet. I looked at my mpg display and it normally said 10-12 mpg. It was now reading 22-24 mpg. It didn't seem to matter if the truck I was tailgating was driving 60 mph or 75 mph. I literally doubled my fuel economy. If you pay attention you'll see that many people drive like this. You don't even have to actually tailgate the truck to see a big difference but the closer you are the bigger difference you'll see. I would ride behind one truck until another one passed and then follow that truck. Eventually you'll get behind a truck that is traveling 5-10 over the speed limit.

I personally don't agree with speed governing, however a slow vehicle is _not_ dangerous, people who assume everyone is doing 5 over without actually checking, and who "have to" swerve around slow vehicles are dangerous. Also they're the idiot who's hood is gonna be stuck under the truck's break chambers, so this isn't really putting the trucker in harm's way. 55 to 65 mph saves dramatically on fuel and wear and tear compared to, say 70, and the energy of the vehicle is much lower meaning that in the case of an accident, the damage will be far less.

@alexander cucalex I don’t drive a truck, but I do drive 25-30k miles per year for work. I occasionally drive long distances (1000+ miles) and 3mph won’t add or subtract a lot of time from that trip, but psychologically it can make the trip feel like it took twice as long…for me anyways…so I speed! Just an FYI and not legal advice, almost every patrol officer I’ve ever asked said they won’t pull anyone over until they go more than 10 over. From personal experience this is 100% accurate, I pass highway patrol cars doing radar duty at 9 over all the time and they never budge.

Wouldn't that 3mph make a big difference in arrival time on long journeys? I'm the type of guy that is do impatient I drive +110mph almost everyday and it saves me 10 min per day on my 30 min commute to work.

He understands how the companies can govern their trucks’ max speed then complains about the fluctuation of speed.. weight and grade effects greatly once a company governed truck is altered. The accelerator has a a delay of 1-1.3secs even more before reacting to you even when hammered down(the accelerator) mine with the accelerator is 62 and on cruise is “66” .. it fluctuates because it either under the load or on a grade

I imagine with the engine they have in a semi truck they could go about as fast as like a normal car with a payload on the back cuz like I've seen like an intake manifold with a turbo for a semi truck before and that thing is huge so I can only imagine how big the engine is

My old coworker used to drive truck out in BC. He told me he got 1% off his yearly insurance for each 1 km/h reduction in max speed or there. Max out there was 100km/h on highway, so he would hit his top speed at only 80. Saved him a ton on insurance and gas. But man did drivers hate him.

With most of our "Autobahn"s here in Germany having only two lanes those elephant races can be quite annoying. But most truckers don't slow down at all. That's because when they slow down the next one is gonna pull out behind them instantly.

Used to be you'd hear over the radio "I got you going down hill but your standing still going up!" Meaning you can gain speed easier down hill but don't have the power to maintain it going up...we would sort out if they stayed behind or passed...was pretty safe and efficient.

Also keep in mind, the more miles your tires get on them wears them smaller so, your not even doing 65 actually. More 64. So please please stay in the right hand lane so the rest of us can safely pass. As driver commented earlier why even try to pass other truck. Again would some of you guys please consider doing this(right hand lane)either way have blessed and a safe day.

Yeah it's definitely a turtle race cuz when you set your cruise control so you're consistent and the other person doesn't use cruise control so you're only within a mile or two difference in speed of what you set cruise control and they're within you know a 5 to 8 mile an hour difference

In Europe the max speed for trucks is 80 km/h, but they can go 89 km/h without a fine, so normal truck speed is 89 km/h. Most of the trucks also use the cruise control, that accelerates and brakes fully automatic. The only situation, where some trucks become very slow is on hills. If your truck is empty, you could easily overtake the others.

I’m a courier driver, we have a box truck. The governor is set at 75MPH. When I attempt to pass someone in the right lane, they speed up, so I’m stuck at 75MPH, and I can’t speed up anymore and the person behind me in the passing lane is upset because I can’t speed up to pass the guy in the right lane. It’s a hassle.
