6 comments from Pennsylvania drivers

Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "Your experience will happen on the roadways" Apr 2017

Roger M. - 11 years on the road

GOOD

The roads marked with visible signs. The scenery in Lancaster with all the fields. There are many attractions to be seen, such as the Gettysburg National Park.

BAD

The roadways and bridges need updated. Construction on the turnpike. Rt. 81 is a mess during the evening rush, a lot of gridlock and accidents.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Learn all you can while in training classes. Four weeks of class is never enough. Your experience will happen on the roadways. Listen to the veteran drivers and carry note book for your personal information. Get a feeling of different loads, understanding the conditions of the roadway and times. Always drive defensively, and use the smith system.

2 | "Keep a good driving record" Mar 2017

Paul F. - 29 years behind the wheel

GOOD

PA is a good area for drivers, because there is a lot of freight moving across I-80 and I-70. It is also easier to get home in this area, because there's always loads moving through here.

BAD

Winter is the biggest issue, and also just the volume of traffic going to and from the East Coast.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Get on with a good company to get some experience, get all of the endorsements on your license, and keep your record clean. After a few years, you will have all of the opportunities you want, and recruiters will be beating your door down! It's all about keeping a good driving record and having the right endorsements.

3 | "Know your driving area - it's easy to get lost" Jan 2017

Rob S. - 2 years under my belt

GOOD

Freedom on the road, Independence, Pay

BAD

Traffic conditions, Winter, Hills, Tight roads

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Always follow road signs, Pre trip, Be Careful

4 | "Have lots of patience" Dec 2016

Bob S. - 9 years of experience

GOOD

You are your own boss and you get to see sights you probably wouldn't see.

BAD

Traffic delays and sitting for long times in accidents avoid Rt 11&15; shamokin damn between the hours of 10:00am-7:30pm

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Have lots and lots of patience, watch out for 4 wheelers and bus drivers.

5 | "Pay attention." Dec 2016

Elliott M. - 30 years driving experience

GOOD

Traveling you get to see the world and meet new people daily!

BAD

The 5 o' clock traffic is congested and horrible on 76 leaving out of Philadelphia.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Take your time and be safe. Just pay attention to what you are doing.

6 | "Nice scenery" Oct 2016

Stephen T. - 14 years driving regionally

GOOD

Nice scenery

BAD

Roads and traffic

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

It always could be worse
