1 | "Always expect the unexpected" Mar 2017

William M. - 4 years driving locally

GOOD

Slow down take your time

BAD

Mountains and curves

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

Just slow down in this state till you get to know the routes you are going to be traveling. Always expect the unexpected talking about the curves being pitched wrong and in other states when you see warning signs for sharp curves it is 10 times worse in the great state of West virginia.

2 | "Good for OTR drivers" Jan 2017

Rock L. - 3 years on the road

GOOD

There's not a lot of options right now for a driver that want to get home regularly to be with their family.

BAD

The roads are bad and worse in the winter

TIP TO NEW DRIVERS

If you don't mind going over the road it's not bad but if you're a family man it's the wrong state to be in because it seems everything is coming into West Virginia not going out. There are a few good companies here and if you get on with one of them don't become greedy over more money and still expect the home time.
