2 comments from Michigan drivers

Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "On ice and snow the brake is not your friend" Apr 2017

Eugene K. - 14 years on the road

GOOD

Not too many big hills, flat roads for the most part. Because of the flat roads if you encounter a back up there's almost always a way around. Also, because of the many auto related businesses there's always freight.

BAD

Ice, snow and cold temperatures.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Just remember on ice and snow the brake is not your friend. Lots of speed traps, also seat belt sting operations. Mind the signs and the laws.

2 | "Be afraid of your truck" Jan 2017

James D. - 15 years of experience

GOOD

There is a lot of good freight coming out of Michigan

BAD

The speed limit for trucks is only 60 mph

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Be courteous to your fellow drivers. If you're new and still not sure of your speed stay, out of the left lane. Always be afraid of your truck, once you feel like you mastered it is when it will show.
