Worst Roads in The U.S.

In an article written by Business Insider this last summer (http://www.businessinsider.com/states-worst-roads-2017-6/#2-connecticut-21512-miles-of-public-roads-with-57-in-poor-condition-7),  they told us that America’s roads received a D on our infrastructure report card from the American Society of Civil Engineers then listed the 8 worst roads in the nation including our capital. They are as follows:

  1. Washington DC – 1,507 miles of public roads, 95% in poor condition
  2. Connecticut – 21,512 miles of public roads, 57% in poor condition
  3. Rhode Island – 16,691 miles of public roads, 54% in poor condition
  4. California – 195,834 miles of public roads, 50% in poor condition
  5. New Jersey – 39,065 miles of public roads, 38% in poor condition
  6. Pennsylvania – 120,091 miles of public roads, 32% in poor condition
  7. Washington – 14,252 miles of public roads, 31% in poor condition
  8. New York – 114,365 miles of public roads, 28% in poor condition

 

Do you agree? What roads do you think are the worst?

Benefits of being an RV Transporter

Lately we’ve been asked quite often what the benefit of being an owner-operator RV transporter and working for Star Fleet Trucking is. While our contractors come from a variety of backgrounds – construction, military, finance, government, medical, retail, etc. – they all came to us & stayed for much the same reasons.

  • It’s less physically demanding.
  • They promptly get back to you when you have questions and are willing to help.
  • There’s less stress and I run on my own schedule.
  • They value safety and never force me to take a load.
  • So impressed with their professionalism. They are also personable.
  • Quick pay!
  • I love that I get to travel and see places I never would have otherwise.
  • They are friendly and always go the extra mile to be helpful.
  • The refresher course!
  • Drive For Gold is a top notch program.
  • Their attention to training and safety are unsurpassed.

If you know someone interested in this line of work, let them know the benefits straight from the source…our contractors!
