1 | "A great place to drive" Dec 2016

Joseph S. - 6 years behind the wheel

GOOD

One of the great things of truck driving is the fact that you are in control of your day.You can get to see the Highways and by ways of this great country. With a local company and with experience you can be home weekly even daily, or you can save on rent by running OTR and living in the truck, saving money for later.

BAD

In Ct ,as in most of New England, Construction And Traffic are the most annoying issues,along with trying to find a safe place to park for your breaks. the southern end of 95 ( towards New York ) can be a parking lot any time of day due to traffic (during the day light hours)or construction(during the night) the capital area (91&84;&5&9)around rush hours . While Ct has re done many rest areas along 95 they have closed the buildings at the rest areas along 84 395 ,Remember NO TRUCKS ON Meritt Parkway> Also local roads were designed around the 1920,s -1950s when trucks were much shorter in length and height.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Get State and local truck specific maps avial at Dmv and local PD's ,Get A Truck Atlas and learn to read it, it has much more info then road routes.Most important take you time ,relax, get out and look where you're going.
