The freeway pattern through every city is different. Some good, some not so good. Here's my opinion of the rundown:Most Attractive Landscaping Award: Fenix, AZ.
Using xeriscape techniques like gravel bedding & well groomed native plants the City of Pheonix has a neat, clean, natural looking freeway system.Worst Traffic Award: Portland, OR.
90 minutes to go 10 miles, need I say more. Worse than NYC.Easy Rider Award: Albercracky, NM.
Albuquerque is a drivers dream! The freeways are clean, wide, well marked, smooth & well lit at night. Did I mention smooth? Which Way Do I Go? (
) Award: St Louis, MO.
There are WAY too many freeways coming together in this city. Add that to a not too well thought out plan for joining them and you have a first time drivers nightmare!DO NOT miss your turn award: Chicago, IL.
Chicago has a hotline for truck drivers to call for routing because of the low bridges. Not so much a problem on the freeways. If you miss your turn on a surface street you might have to call 911 to get the police to stop traffic so you can turn around. It really is THAT
bad.Paint Shaker Award: Oklahoma City, OK.
I hope you have everything in your truck well secured.Well Developed Award: Dallas/Ft Worth area.
The Dallas/Ft Worth Disasterplex has such a thorough complex of limited-access roads that you spend very little time fighting traffic on surface streets.There Is No Way In Heck I'm Going To Make That Turn Award: Philadelphia, PA
If you've ever driven through Philly in anything larger than a Honda, you know what I'm talking about! Don't Even Try Award: New York City, NY
I would love to tour New York City in a car. I've been there twice in a truck. If you really, really
tried, could you make it worse for a truck driver?
