Common Sense At Schneider Trucking

Schneider, the Wisconsin-based national trucking company, is fighting fuel cost increases by slowing its high-visibility orange fleet of trucks from 63 mph to 60 mph and producing a projected saving of 3.75 million gallons of fuel annually.

Airlines are taking similar steps, too.

Pretty smart, so hat's off to Schneider. I imagine at a 5% slower speed, those rigs would also be easier to stop in an emergency, too.

I think I have seen the high-visibility orange trucks about.
