Let the trucks go slower - they already drive slower than the posted limit on the freeways, etc.. when they need to.

The difference here is the truck driver isn't driving at the limit of his mental capabilities.

Don't plance unreasonable constraints on the majority to accommodate the minority.
Yeah, and don't come off like you are an amazing driver thats being limited by 'the man'. The moment you get confident behind the wheel will be the time something out of left field will t-bone you.
