By the way, ATA also asked for 65 MPH limit and e-governors to make it happen.
Recall the Jimmuh Carter days? The 55 MPH limit? It was the best thing ever to happen to truck-and-trailer manufacturers. Understand that trucking is similar to a conveyor belt. If a fixed number of goods MUST move from one end to the other and the speed of the belt is reduced, that means that more items must be placed on the belt (more trucks and trailers) OR the capacity of each carrier must increase (larger GVW limits.)
