Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "Slow down, you make mistakes when you're in a hurry." Apr 2017

Leslie L. - 19 years

GOOD

Easy access to major highways north south and west

BAD

95 and 695 during morning and evening rush hour

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Slow down and pay attention, you make mistakes when your in a hurry. Evening hours are the best time to go through Baltimore.

2 | "Take your time" Mar 2017

Mark V. - 30 years and 3 million miles

GOOD

Most of trucks are safe!

BAD

The laws on 95 with 2 lane restrictions are not safe.Scales are not operating safe on 95 in Perryville!

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Be very careful.Take your time. Make sure you are legal.

3 | "NO TRUCK/TRAVEL PLACES TO REST!!!" Feb 2017

Anthony L. - 20 years and over one million miles

GOOD

If you live and work here your home more. Other than that really not many good things. Time consuming traffic & congestion. High cost of real estate and taxes, coupled with heavy regs, MD not very business friendly so O/O is not great in MD. For OTR NO TRUCK/TRAVEL PLACES TO REST!!! As OTR you drive through MD. There is no place to stop & MSP & DOT are what you would expect. Based on cost of living, pay really is not better than industry standard.

BAD

Traffic. 2nd worst in the country. Many surrounding states that any local company could travel to for business. No continuity in regulations among the states especially regarding weight restrictions hard to know if your compliant.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

If your local and this is home and your happy? Excellent you're good. If you were gonna O/O, I would look to the surrounding states for better options in operating cost & regulation. If you're starting a trucking company in MD, good luck I applaud your commitment.

4 | "Watch our for those cheaper companies" Jan 2017

Sereno B. - 13 years

GOOD

The best parts of driving in Maryland is you have lots of companies to choose from.

BAD

The headaches are to watch out for those cheaper companies that manages to get away without paying over time. So you should ask before beginning employment with them.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Just be patient find a hands on touch freight job first, they pay the most money. Always drive safe try to save as much money as possible.

5 | "Slow down and give yourself time" Jan 2017

Gary B. - 2 years

GOOD

Independence, Freedom, No boss, Time management, and if you're an OTR, then you get paid to travel! See things you have never seen before.

BAD

The short stops, Truck blowing through red lights, and tailgating.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

It is a great field to get into whether local or over the road, because you are your own boss, as long as you make those deliveries on time.

6 | "Always be aware of your surroundings" Dec 2016

Torey B. - over 16 years

GOOD

It's a major city but the areas is not over populated that would cause any major delays.

BAD

Some drivers like to drop in directly in front of you when changing lanes. If there is flashing lights roadside or an accident you have a lot of rubber neckers that will cause traffic jams.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Always be aware of your surroundings and plan ahead and be predictive of other drivers around you and a rule of thumb always have a way out. Make sure you are confident in the equipment you are control as well as hauling.

7 | "No rush, just enjoy the drive" Nov 2016

Lamont F. - 2.5 years

GOOD

Here is the peace of mind you've been asking for

BAD

Rush hour just like in other states

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

There's no rush enjoy the drive
