5 comments from Ohio drivers

Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "Variety of driving" Dec 2016

Drew G. - 12 years driving experience

GOOD

The views of the landscape weather north or south. There's so many different varieties of driving here it's awesome.

BAD

Inner big city driving can always be crazy. The extreme weather conditions that change here in the blink of eye

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Keep your head up and both feet on the ground. Know your place but also earn your keep. It's a cut throat world out here and you have to work hard to be rewarded. Stay with it because it does pay off.

2 | "Good turnpike facilities" Nov 2016

John B. - 42 years behind the wheel

GOOD

Good turnpike facilities. Decent roads, good truck stops. Decent law enforcement.

BAD

Nothing different from other states

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Take your time. Don't tailgate.

3 | "Plenty of jobs" Nov 2016

Michael J. - 16 years over the road

GOOD

Plenty of work, many local and regional jobs moving a variety of goods

BAD

DOT and State Highway patrol are active in giving level 3 inspections. Even hands free communication while driving is prohibited. Rush hour in the bigger cities.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Driving in Ohio has it's ups and downs, but still the best job to have overall. very little supervision

4 | "Truck driver jobs are everywhere" Nov 2016

Deirdre A. - 2 years of experience

GOOD

You can find some good jobs. Truck driver jobs are everywhere

BAD

The speed limit and construction and winter weather

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Always second guess yourself

5 | "Trucker friendly state" Nov 2016

Raymond C. - 9 years driving OTR

GOOD

Major freight lane, Trucker friendly, good highway maintenance during seasonal changes

BAD

Parking

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Pay attention use what you learn and apply the smith system
