Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "Lots of open roads" Jan 2017

Richard H. - 10 years of experience

GOOD

Lots of open road. Mostly flat grades.

BAD

Truck stops are few and far between, but truck traffic is pretty light, so you can usually find a place to park. When Nevada does road construction, they don't always remove the zipper lines completely. I almost took out another vehicle, because I it was raining, and I started following the wrong zipper line.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Self driving trucks are coming. OTR driving is about to end. Enjoy the road while you can.

2 | ""Open roads and 75mph speed limits"" Dec 2016

Eric T. - 5 years behind the wheel and 300,000 miles

GOOD

Open roads, 75mph speed limits, easy to pass, doesn't usually snow often, scales are usually closed.

BAD

Other drivers that drive irrationally, drunk drivers, chain controls when it snows.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Take it easy don't hurry don't get over competent

3 | "Open roads, beautiful scenery" Nov 2016

Neal M. - 40 years driving experience

GOOD

Open roads, beautiful scenery.

BAD

4-wheelers do not know how to merge, Reno police setting up checkpoints on 395 way north of Reno.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

You have my sympathy...only kidding! Remember you are the captain of the ship...let no dispatcher or boss make you speed or drive less cautiously.

4 | ""A truck friendly state"" Nov 2016

Phil B. - 20 years on the road

GOOD

For the most part, Nevada is a truck friendly state. The quality of the roads and the ability to use all the lanes of the roadway legally.

BAD

Because of the higher speed limits compared to back east, midwest etc. The slower trucks to have a more difficult time because they can not keep up.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Pay attention to everything. Do NOT think that 3 weeks in a school gives you the understand of many year, four season drivers.
