    Just out of curiosity for those of us who have to do highway driving to get to our route, does your speed governor seem to fluctuate? Some days mine will cap at 65 on a flat straight-away and other days it caps at 67 on a flat straight-away.

    Just wondering.

    That Govern explains why drivers get off so late.

    All of the package cars I drove varied from about 67 to 74. Posted speed limit for a little over half of my trip to my route was 70. My very last day driving, my package car was packed as full as I have ever seen a package car packed. Literally top to bottom, front to back. I was in my regular package car which was topping off around 72ish on a normal day. This last day, I couldn't get past 62 going downhill. I felt more unsafe that day than any other...due to the fact that I couldn't keep up with the interstate traffic. 18 wheelers, cars....everyone was flying past me...honking, cutting me off. It was pretty crazy.
