4 comments from Massachusetts drivers

Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "Get at least one year experience" Mar 2017

Gurit L. - 11 years driving locally

GOOD

You are home every night, most of the time you drive around New England

BAD

Low bridges, no truck routes, people don't respect big trucks

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Be ready to drive on narrow, small tight roads, special in Boston, be ready to back into tight spaces lot of blind side docks, don't be a fool and start driving right after getting your license, get at least one year over the road experience. Get at least one year experience practice backing a lot, don't loose your license driving local right after

2 | "Find your Niche" Feb 2017

Burt M. - 33 years experience and almost 3 million miles

GOOD

The pay is good and overtime is plenty, if not mandatory. Most of the employers tend to be understanding in regards to the environment we work in.

BAD

Traffic, traffic, traffic, next would be weather but it's manageable.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Be careful take your time and never rush, better to be late than in a ditch. Be a lone wolf, never drive with the pack and you only as good as the fellow who is driving next to you, so be alert. Find a nitch, a specialty like Hazmat, tankers or heavy equipment. Stay away from general freight if you can.

3 | "E-logs make driving difficult" Nov 2016

Thomas J. - 38 years driving experience

GOOD

Move to western MA, less traffic and DOT not bad out there

BAD

Traffic on the 495 and 128

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Find a new trade, E-logs will make you sleep in your truck a half hour from your house because you got stuck in traffic. Hard to make a living out hear now with E-logs.

4 | "Not worth the headache" Oct 2016

John J. - 34 years behind the wheel

GOOD

It's a paycheck

BAD

The state gives anybody the licences they don't care if they read write or speak English

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

give up the ticket, they may change the laws for us but not for the cars that cause 75 % of the accidents out here
