4 comments from Oregon drivers

Add your comment & help fellow drivers!

1 | "Great state with wonderful places" Dec 2016

Spencer C. - 36 years driving OTR and local

GOOD

One is you get to see this great state and the wonderful places and people all over it.

BAD

Yes avoid I-5 and I-205 during rush hours at all costs if possible, drive at off peak hours if possible.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Be careful and watchful of Oregon and Washington drivers, they're not like other states and they panic easily, cut you off and they'll run right into you thinking its their right to take your lane without warning or signal..

2 | "Weather isn't too extreme" Dec 2016

Meredith B. - 4 years of experience

GOOD

The weather isn't too extreme.

BAD

Portland seems to be behind in accommodating the people that have moved here in terms of adding lanes to existing roads. Therefore, most of the Portland metro areas sucks for traffic.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Don't give up. I was told that most local truck driving companies want you to have 2 years OTR experience.

3 | "Portland is frustrating" Dec 2016

Chuck S. - 30 years driving experience

GOOD

The roads are good, the traffic isn't bad

BAD

55 mph speed limit and Portland is frustrating to drive through

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Try to stay on interstate 5 or 84.

4 | "Great drivers, unpredictable weather" Dec 2016

Michael V. - 28 years on the road

GOOD

Fellow Drivers and the cost of living is in line with pay

BAD

Weather for a good portion of the year is unpredictable.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Get used to the smell of Plywood :) Curtain Vans are better than Flat beds Tarping in the snow is a pain and dangerous.
