55mph for trucks in California.. Some people hate it, others don’t mind it.. me, I don’t mind it.. Gives me a chance to relax even. I remember when Ohio was a 55mph state for trucks & they’d pull you for running 57 or 58 at times. Not all the time but often enough where some troopers we’re that strict. I’ve gotten pulled in Ohio at that time for running 58 so I’m speaking from experience.. The crazy part about it then was the tickets didn’t go on your license, they just wanted the money.. Ohio has since changed and it’s one speed limit for everyone now.. But I remember during that time, many drivers hated running across Ohio. The split speed limits have always been a concern amongst drivers, the industry & citizens even.. In states where truck speeds are 55 but car speed limits are 65 or 70, it can cause all types of chaos on the highways.. So when you’re driving your car and wondering why trucks are going so slow in some states, pay attention to the speed limit signs because it just may be a “split speed limit” state between cars & commercial vehicles.. #trucking #truckersjourney #roadlife #truckingindustry #truckdriver #speedlimit #otr #overtheroad #america #truckinglife #lifeontheroad
