Truck speeds

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent ar­ti­cle in Aus­tralia’s Sil­i­con Chip mag­a­zine, truck speedome­ters are more ac­cu­rate than car speedome­ters. So if you’re driv­ing along with your speedo on 90km/h and all you can see in your rearview mir­ror is the grille of a Ken­worth, it’s prob­a­bly be­cause you’re only do­ing 85km/h. Also, mod­ern high­way trucks have cruise con­trol, whereas a lot of car driv­ers don’t seem to be able to main­tain a steady speed.
