1 | "Respectful drivers and nice scenery" Dec 2016

Jerry T. - 5 years of experience

GOOD

The scenery can be nice also the amount of respect other drivers can show you goes a long way

BAD

Traffic, ignorant 4 wheel drivers no driver courtesy and distracted drivers abound

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

watch out for sudden stops and starts and watch out for all the other drivers and hang in there with road rage these people know not what they do

2 | "Inexpensive driving" Dec 2016

Brad M. - 4 years driving experience

GOOD

Kent and Sussex counties are pretty spread out so it makes it easy to navigate. New castle County isn't that bad either but still a bit more congested than the 2 southern counties. Tolls are inexpensive.

BAD

One headache of driving a truck in Delaware is the large chicken plants in the little towns. Usually at shift starts and ends traffic backs up around the plants for excessive amounts of time.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Stick with it, everything has its ups and downs but there are benefits to not having someone with you all hours of the day.
