    In CA and I think WA too, vehicles towing trailers can only go 55. In OR they can go the speed limit. (NOT trucks, still 55 think the designation is 3 axles or more is a truck)

    the 3 trailer thing is kinda cool actually, they can't go over 55 and only on the freeway, not 2 lane highways (which is most of OR)

    Its scary driving in The South, like GA and the Caylinas---dam truckers will run you over doing 80 and get the Flock outta the way! Now THATS scary, no fooling

    Also IMPORTANT TRAVEL TIP!! Never rent a car with MA plates in the Caylinas, they won't like you. Trust me on this

    Happy just to be alive

    •  Two words: logging trucks. (0+ / 0-)

      Nothing like driving down a winding mountain road and seeing a logging truck coming barrelling up in your rear view mirror.

      Strikes fear in the heart of even the bravest road warrior.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
