I have also seen a sign on the back of a big rig trailer that said "Caution, speed governed at 65 mph".
It would be nice if people had a little more patience for heavy vehicles towing. It's not just the ones who take a grade slow, it's everywhere. I see it constantly. People just don't understand or care what it takes to safely operate a heavy vehicle. Sometimes I think it's a true testament to many of the OTR truckers that we don't have more highway deaths than we do. Granted, some are no good, but I can't imagine how many times a day they avoid splattering some one having an ID10T error.
I've even gotten the ol' one finger salute and tantrum for (gasp!) driving the speed limit while towing!! They got all upset because I didn't move to the shoulder (which is littered with all manner of harmful debris), in an area where there are passing lanes every few miles specifically designed for him to pass me!
