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:
- Washington DC – 1,507 miles of public roads, 95% in poor condition
- Connecticut – 21,512 miles of public roads, 57% in poor condition
- Rhode Island – 16,691 miles of public roads, 54% in poor condition
- California – 195,834 miles of public roads, 50% in poor condition
- New Jersey – 39,065 miles of public roads, 38% in poor condition
- Pennsylvania – 120,091 miles of public roads, 32% in poor condition
- Washington – 14,252 miles of public roads, 31% in poor condition
- New York – 114,365 miles of public roads, 28% in poor condition
Do you agree? What roads do you think are the worst?
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!
