1 | "Beautiful scenery" Jan 2017

Steve B. - 3 years of experience

GOOD

Tennessee has some beautiful scenery so that's a plus. For the most part, the weather doesn't get bad which makes driving in winter a lot easier. All the scale houses I've dealt with here have some really good people working at them.

BAD

Nashville drivers. Interstate 65 South is horrible during morning rush hour and Northbound is worse during afternoon rush hour. Stay off 1-440 if possible, it's a mess.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Don't be afraid of letting people help. It won't make you look bad and most drivers are happy to do it. Don't litter. If you find a good place to park for your 10, don't trash it up and ruin it for the next driver. Above all, make sure to keep your equipment clean and always do good pre and post trips inspections

2 | "Great proximity to major shipping lanes" Jan 2017

Jason S. - 5 years of driving experience

GOOD

Tennessee is a great state because of the proximity to major shipping lanes. 75 & 40 split offer excellent opportunities for a variety of cargo.

BAD

Because of the mountainous terrain (especially 75 north of Knoxville) the slow moving governed trucks can cause a cluster very quickly.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Safety is key.

3 | "Great career in a great state" Dec 2016

Laken B. - 5 years behind the wheel

GOOD

It's a great career if you like to be on the open road, taking in some of the wonderful sights that TN has to offer with it's hilly and mountainous landscape.

BAD

There is always rush hour traffic around the big cities such as Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, etc.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Safety is key.

4 | "I was able to take care of my family" Dec 2016

Derrick F. - 15 years on the road

GOOD

The first thing that comes to mind for myself is the fact that when I started driving I was finally able to take care my family with no problems. Secondly I was able to travel and see sites that I may not have seen.

BAD

One of the biggest headaches for me would have to be how little regard automobiles have for big trucks.

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

For a new driver I would tell them not to be afraid to ask someone for help if it is needed. On my first trip out I didn't have a anything that I needed, things such as a proper change of clothes, shower shoes, or towels.
