Are they going to mandate either the banning or compulsory use of Eco-Roll then ?
Why Ban ?
Because it's downright dangerous. Basically what happens is the truck shuts off power when it has climbed the hill by about 95% and uses kinetics to crest the hill and to return back to speed.
Sounds clever doesn't it ?
Until you realise that the truck you just powered by going uphill and who has just flashed you in has now had to stomp on the anchors because your wagon has gone into Eco-Roll right in front of him/Her and it's not fitted to theirs !
Yes your roadspeed drops like the proverbial brick thrown in the air ! (With no brakes lights as you're not braking)
Now lets add in that your company has disabled all manual functions of the automatic gearbox.
ie: No Kickdown and no pre shifting down in readiness for that hill you know you're going to slow down on. How many following wagons do you think who CAN downshift in readiness and expect you to be doing the same suddenly find themselves up your ringpiece and looking to Get the heck out into Lane 2 pronto ?
And now for Lane depart. Lol what a joke. We get false readings from the "now removed" Lick & Stick road studs from former roadworks and the Anti-Collision" brakes activate full braking when there's nothing there !
