Q&A - What do the Police Think about Heavy Trucks?
I drive a semi tractor trailer for a living. I was wondering what cops' take is on slowly rolling through a stop sign at 5 kph, after scanning the intersection in a rural area and seeing no traffic.
Reason for this is this type of driving saves the truck. Coming to a full stop in a fully loaded semi (and even more so with a fully loaded super B is incredibly hard on the truck, the transmission, clutch, and drive train.
I also want to know what cop's take is on running hills. Say there's a downhill and then an immediate up hill after, I will usually let the truck "go" to between 120-130 kmh for a short period and when I hit the other hill it slows me down to the speed limit or quite often way below it.
