    Do tractor trailer drivers now get their CDL certification based on their level of stupidity or in a box of Cracker Jacks? These idiots are NOW the majority of drivers on I-81, I-80, I-84 and I-380!! Out to kill and maim car drivers! Time to reinstate the 2 speed limits with truck relegated to 50 MPH and verified by speed recorders that can be used to LOSE their CDL FOREVER!
