  1. Depends. On EU2 it's a mixed bag. I wouldn't say people drive as carefully as they would IRL, even I don't. But there are a lot of players who drive reasonably sensibly, as in, they might not obey slower speed limits, but they aren't flying around everywhere and loosing control of their vehicle. In busy areas like the road to/from Calais to Duisburg or in Paris, you'll see a lot of idiots. Outside of busy areas (basically anywhere that isn't near Calais, Duisburg and Paris), most people are reasonably well behaved, especially in DLC areas. I wouldn't say it's all bad, even on the busy roads, I find that it makes for a more entertaining drive... As long as you're not the one suffering because of the idiots' actions. Although with the winter mod once again making the rounds, the busy areas (especially the Calais-Duisburg road) are particularly messy right now.
  2. But how many of them are at 150+K? The vast majority of accidents I witness are at ~90-120K, while the vast majority of accidents I witnessed at 150+ were cars spontaneously flipping mid-corner, which usually didn't have any impact on anyone else. This limiter really doesn't do anything to stop the vast majority of accidents. Idiots will drive like idiots, be it 90k or 200k.
  3. Depends. I don't tend to do long jobs. Saying that, I do like to make a bit of a detour down C-D. Nothing out of the way mind you. Sometimes I'm fine, sometimes I can't stop getting hit. Once, I got hit and ended up my side, loaded a quick save and in the EXACT SAME SPOT, I got completely annihilated by someone going the wrong way, all in the space of about 40 seconds. If you want to avoid the freaks, early morning on school days are you best bet. The absolute worst time, in my experience, is late at night on Fridays and Saturdays. That's when all the idiots seem to come out, and it doesn't help that admins are pretty much non-existent at that time.
  4. I don't care tbh... I don't drive those speeds, and at the same time, this will do very little in the way of preventing accidents. As far as I'm concerned, this is just limiting it for the sake of limiting...
  5. I've never been one to bother with the whole speed thing, though I'm pretty sure I've had my Merc, with a Scania engine and Scania 6 Speed box up to 96. Personally, I have the powerful engines for the heavy loads and the 6 speed for the acceleration.
  6. It's a nice feature since the auto kick frees up some of the mod's time. It's definitely a bit too early though, but that's probably for Winter Mod users. Those of us who were driving in the days before this feature understand the pain of coming across a ghost driver.

  8. I understand the whole "it's the driver not the car", that's obvious, although the scout needs a major improvement. But look at it this way... BMW drivers, Audi drivers, Bus Drivers, Cyclists, VW Passat drivers, White van drivers... It's never the vehicle itself that's the problem, but rather the kind of person that vehicle seems to attracts. The scout fits in the same bubble, it attracts idiots who can't drive. Yeah, you'll your good examples, but of all the bad experiences you have, it always seems to be the same ones cropping up again and again. I know I have far more bad experiences with scout drivers than I do truck drivers. Not to mention the added chaos that the scout causes when it gets into a high speed crash...
  9. I used to, but at this point I don't bother... It's too much hassle, and frankly I've got much better things to do than try and police an online community that has seemingly always had a problem with a lack of admins...
  10. I've got mine at 100%. People can say what they want about people with it at 100% and act holier than thou because they're on some low intensity, but the reality is that even at the speed limits, 100% is far more useful. I've been saved plenty of times when some idiot has pulled out right in front of me or swerved over onto my side of the road simply because I've had it 100%. If I were rocking it as low as 30%, especially with the heavier loads, I wouldn't've stood a chance. I don't have 100% on because I'm doing 4000 MPH. I have it on because people don't know how to drive in this game, and it saves us all the hassle of TPing to the garage.
  11. ^ Last one could simply be for show/advertisement purposes. Are these actually doubles or are they Rigids with a drawbar like this:
  12. *Drives into Scandinavia* o.o

    Doubles, doubles everywhere...

      I haven't been playing with the update yet, but I can imagine there are a lot of DAF's hauling doubles.

  14. I have to disagree with a handful of things here... I'm sorry but that's completely wrong. If you overtake and don't get it done, that's on you. YOU are in THEIR lane. They don't have to give you space to complete your poorly judged overtake, they give you space because they don't want to get wrecked by a bad driver. There's no reason for you to be on the wrong side of the road unless the truck in front of you is going painfully slow. Even then, if you are ever in a position where the guy on the other side of the road has to give you room for you to complete your overtake (excluding very extreme circumstances like slow moving traffic and some sort of obstruction), then you've overtaken poorly, and driven recklessly, which is bannable. If I was forced to the side of the road by your failed overtake attempt, you can bet your ass that I'd submit a report and you'd walk away with a warning or a ban... I completely disagree with these in this contex... C-D should be treated like EP. No overtaking at all, except for very specific scenarios (poorly parked truck, truck ahead is going very slow/lagging very bad) No, braking is an option. In fact, it's probably the option you should go for. If you go head on, you'd likely be looking at a combined speed of about 80-100MPH. That sort of force is going to lift both trucks off the ground, ass first, and you're going to end up with at least one jackknifed trailer blocking the road, causing another 3 or so people too crash into eachother. If you brake, you slow people down, but you don't block to road because you've crashed.
