Interstate Highway SystemHungrywolf 2008-04-27

Interstate Design



● The interstates were originally designed to be able to run military equipment from coast to coast on flatbed trailers at sustained speeds of 75 mph.

● Did you know that if you're on interstate 5, you have 5% of the U.S. left to the west of you? If you are on interstate 95, you have 95% left to the west of you?

● If you are on interstate 20, you have 20% of the U.S. left to the south of you? If you are on interstate 90, you have 90% left to the south of you?

● ALL [or mostly all] interstates going east or west have EVEN numbers. ALL interstates going north or south have ODD numbers.

● If a city bypass has an even number it loops [called a LOOP] back to the same interstate. i.e. I-440 ends back up on I-40.

● If a city bypass has an odd number it does NOT loop [called a SPUR] back to the same interstate. i.e. I-540 does not come back to I-40.



Mile Markers

● Did you know that ALL mile markers go down as you head south and go up as you head north?

● ALL mile markers go down as you head west and up as you head east?

● If you are in Tennessee at the 300 mile marker on I-40 heading west, you have 300 miles to the Arkansas border.

● If a mile marker looks like this: 195|5 what does it mean? It means you are at the 195 and 5 tenths mile marker. The use of the tenths in a mile marker can be very helpful if you are broke down to allow police or other help pinpoint your exact location.



Interstate Signs



● Did you know that if the exit number on an interstate sign is on the top right of the sign that you will exit to the right no matter if it says exit only or not? See the illustration:

● The same rule applies if it was on the left side!

대략 뜻을 살펴보면

* 인터스테이트 하이웨이는 원래 군부대의 장비를 플랫베드 트레일러로 운반 하기 위해
75 mph로 달릴 수 있도록 만들었다

*Interstate 5 즉 I-5 이면 길 서쪽으로 us국토의 5%가 있다는 거고
I-95 이 면 서쪽으로 미국 국토의 95%가 있다

*I-20 이면 남쪽으로 미국국토의 20%가 있고 I-90이면 남쪽으로 90%가 있다 는 뜻이다

*짝수번호로된 인터스테이트는 동서로 이어지고,홀수로 된 인터스테이트는 남 북으로 이어진다

*by pass는 세자리수의 인터스테이트인데 짝수로 시작되면 다시 그 인터스테 이트와 연결된다
즉 I-440 이면 I-40와 연결된다되

* 홀수로 시작 되면 스 인터스테이트와 연결되지 않는다
즉 I-540 이면 I- 40와 연결되지 않는다

*마일마커의 숫자는 남쪽에서 북쪽으로 갈수록 높아지고
또 서쪽에서 동 쪽으 로 갈 수록 높아진다

만약 테네시 주의 I-40 300마일 마커에서 서쪽으로 향하고 있다면
알칸사 스와 테네시 경계에서부터 300지점에 있다는 뜻이다

* 마일마커 195/5 는 195마일 그리고 5/10 마일지점이라는 뜻이다
이 마일마커는 경찰에게 정확한 위치를 알리는데 도움이 된다

*안내간판에서 Exit 번호가 간판의 왼쪽에 있으면 왼쪽 Exit이고
오른쪽 에 있 으면 오른쪽 Exit이라는 뜻이다

Top 10 do's and don'ts for new truck drivers Hungrywolf 2008-04-27
첨부 파일:  
Welcome to the world of long haul trucking. It can be a fun occupation or a very stressful one depending on how you approach it. Here are the top 10 do's and don'ts of OTR trucking........... 1.Always, I repeat always run your CB radio. This keeps you connected and informed about whats going on around you. Knowing about a potential problem and addressing it before it interupts your trip is priceless. Yeah you're gonna hear some garbage, it comes with the profession. If hearing a few curse words bothers you that much, you're in the wrong profession............... 2. Never flash your bright lights on another truck to let him know that he can come over into your lane. It does'nt feel good to the eyes after they've adjusted to night landscape. If you're in a truck that does'nt allow you to flick them off momentarily, don't do anything. Either tell him on the CB radio or flick your marker lights.............. 3. If the scale house is backed out on the highway, don't stop on the highway or the shoulder. The D.O.T guys that run these scales expect you too use common sense. Over the years I've seen and heard of deadly accidents as a result of big trucks stopping on the road in an attemt not to by-pass scales. Doing this is extemely dangerous. If they want you that bad they will come and get you. In 15yrs of driving this has never happened to me............... 4. Always be cortious and help your fellow truckers when ever possible. If you see a guy brokedown or trying too slide axles, needing directions or whatever help them. What you do too others will be done to you......... 5.Whenever possible if someon(truck or car) is on the shoulder of the road, merge over into the other lane and give them some space. This is a preventive technique. Having a big truck roaring by you at highway speeds 2 or 3ft away can be very scary. God forbid if someone or something comes into your lane, what can you do? Ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure............ 6. Never say anything on a CB that you would'nt say with your feet on the ground. How many times have you walked into a truckstop and heard someone cursing and raising holy #### with others? Only to get back it the truck and ch 19 sounds like armegedon. I have seen people physically attacked for things that they said on the CB............. 7. Hygiene... Keep yourself and your truck as clean as possible, speaks volumes of you and the type of person you are. Ever wonder how truckers got the public image that they have? Never allow trash to pile up in your truck and on your dash. Nasty trashy trucks send out red flags to DOT officers........... 8. Never allow dispacters or brokers to push you into running illegal or in un-safe conditions. Regardless to what they tell you, you are responsible for your that truck and your load and if anything happens you will be blamed and possibly fired or worst loose your license............. 9. Loosen up and have fun with it. Trucking can be a very stressful job and will overwhelm you if you allow it to. Relax, 3 things are a given everyday that you drive. People will cut you off, hit the brakes in front of you and basically do idiotic driving around you. No need to get upset. Road rage only hurts the person enraged, most times they never even know you exist. It's just another day at the office......... 10. Each and everyday before you drive, always do visual pre-trips and as soon as you notice a problem, fix it. If not little things pile up quickly and lead to big things and that equals downtime and that equals less money. Always remember this, Whatever happened today was all in a days work, the only thing that matters is that you can get up and do it all over again the next day. Good luck 10가 해야 할일과 하지 않아야 될 것들 1, CB 라디오는 항상 켜 놓는다 2, 다른 트럭이 추월할경우 밤에는 하이빔 신호를 절대 주지 말라 3, weight station의 램프가 밀려 있을때는 절대 하이웨이 선상에 정지하지말 라 4, 다른 운전사가 도움이 필요할때는 항상 도움을 줘라 5, shoulder에 차가 정차하고 있는경우 반드시 래인을 체인지 해라 6, CB 라디오에 필요 없는 말을 절대 하지마라 7, 항상 청결을 유지하고 트럭안을 깨끗히 정리 하라 8, 절대 법에 어기거나 안전에 워협이되는 일은 하지마라 9,편안하고 즐거운 기분을 유지하라 10, 매일 PTI를 하고 고장이 발견 될시는 즉시 수리해라

5th wheel 관리Hungrywolf 2008-04-27
첨부 파일:  
What is the proper way to lubricate a 5th wheel? It might not be the most complicated part of the truck,but the 5th wheel is an important one. When the 5th wheel plate is properly lubricated it can remain in peak performance for a long time. Proper application of 5th wheel grease is essential but is often done incorrectly. The best way to judge whether it is time to reapply 5th wheel grease is to visually inspect it. Too thin of a film will cause greater wear on the 5th wheel; however a film of old grease can be a problem as well. It is important to regularly remove old grease,as lubricants can become contaminated when mixed with the dust and dirt of thousands of highway miles. When the 5th wheel is clean of old grease,begin applying a small bead of grease evenly in a back-and -forth motion. Apply a heavier coat to the rear two-thirds of the 5th wheel as the grease will be pushed forward when engaging the kingpin of a trailer. Careful though,over-lubricating will waste grease and can cause it to fall on the axle or frame rail. In addition,grease that spills onto the ground can be harmful to the environment. Using the proper grease is essential. Often,differant type of greases or oil are used,but grease formulated specifically for 5th wheel applications provide the best lubrication. The proper thickness is crucial as thin grease will wear away quickly during wet conditions and grease that is too thick may cause clumping. To assure s 5th wheel remains properly lubricated use grease with heavier base ooils to attain adequate film thickness. Proper 5th wheel grease will hold up during harsh weather conditions and provide increased wear protection 5th wheel 관리 5thwheel 관리는 그다지 어려운일은 아니지만 아주 중요한 부분이다 항상 육안으로 잘 검사한다 너무 얇게 발라져 있으면 마모가 쉽게 되고 오래 된 경우 먼지와 이물질들이 섞여 문제를 일으키게 된다 정기적으로 오래된 그리이스를 제거하고 새 그리이스를 급유하는것이 좋다 그리이스는 적은양을 골고루 얇게 앞뒤방향으로 발라준다음 뒤에서부터 3분 의 2까지 좀더 많은 양의 그리이스를 발라준다 너무 많은 양을 바를 경우 그리이스를 허비 할뿐 아니라 액슬과 프레임에 흘리 게 되고 땅에 떨어진 그리이스는 환경오염의 주원인이 된다

연료 절감방법Hungrywolf 2008-04-27
첨부 파일:  
연료비는 트럭 드라이버에게는 소요경비의 가장많은 부분을 차지한다 여기 그 연료를 절감하는 발법을 소개한다 운전자의 습관들이기에 따라 1년에 $2000 이상 $6000을 절약할 수 있다 물론 공해도 줄이는 1석2조의 효과도 있다 Extra mile을 달려서 돈을 더 버는 것 보다 연료를 절감해서 extra income을 늘이는 것이 얼마나 현명한 트럭 드라이버인가? 현재 나는 150 운전시간에 0%의 idling을 기록중이다 perfect한 0%의 공회전룰이 얼마동안이나 가능할까 시험해보고 있는중이다 약 7000 마일을 달리는 동안 5분이 넘는 공회전을 한번도 안 했다는 뜻이다 Shut it off Every non-idling hour saves about a gallon of fuel,or about $2.50 Slow down Above 55 every extra mile an hour reduces fuel economy by 0.1 mile per gallon Slowing to 65 mph from 70 can cut fuel costs by $1450 annually Slowing to 60 increases savings to $1850. Use highest gear possible Lower rpm can save several gallons an hour and reduce wear and tear Use cruise control where appropriate. Skip a gear when shifting up(block shift) Anticipate traffic flow When traffic slows or stops ahead,easy off the throttle Accelerate smoothly and gradually Don't mash on it or bang gears Truck and trailer are your tools. keep them properly maintained Keep tires inflated to the manufacturer's recommended pressure or that mandated by your fleet. Make sure brakes are not overtight and dragging. Adjust your attitude Calm drivers use less fuel than angry drivers. Coast when possible Conversely, when climbing hills, don't try to conserve fuel Plan your trip ahead. 연료를 절약하는 방법 공회전은 하지 않는다, 1시간의 공회전은 1갈론($2.50)을 소비한다 경제 속도를 유지한다, 55mph로 운전하면 약 0.1mile/gallon의 효과가 있다 70mph에서 60mph로 운전하면 1년에 $1850을 절약한다 가능한한 놀은 기어를 사용한다 크루즈 컨트롤을 사용한다 up shifting할때 기어를 건너 뛴다 차량이 밀려 있을때는 서행 한다 급가속이나 급정지를 피한다 트럭과 트레일러는 항상 점검한다 타이어의 공기압력은 규정치를 유지한다 브레이크가 너무 조여져 있지 않게 한다 차분한 상태에서의 운전 습관을 들인다 항상 pre trip plan을 세운다

Road RageHungrywolf 2008-04-27
첨부 파일:  
Road Rage 운전을 하다보면 본의 아니게 다른 운전자와 신경전을 벌이게 되는 경우가 있다 의도적은 아니였더라도 상대방이 어떻게 받아 들이느냐에 따라 보복운전이나 불쾌한 바디 랭귀지를 주고 받게되기도 한다 시간에 쫒기거나 신경이 날카로운 상태에서는 더욱더 쉽게 문제를 일으키게 되고 부주의한 운전 역시 다른 운전자들을 화나게 만드는 요인이다 Tailgate, Speeding,Fails to yield the right of way 등등 이러한 난폭한 운전은 하이웨이 폭력의 주원인이며 이에 따른 위협을 받거나 보복운전을 당하게 된다 최대한 이런 Road Rage를 피하는것이 안전한 운전이고 이 안전한 운전은 안전한 하이웨이를 만들고 교통체증도 감소된다 전문가가 조언하는 Road Rage를 피하는 방법은 다음과 같다 Plan your route in advance. Some of the most erratic and inconsiderate driving occurs when motorists are lost Make a conscious dicision not to take your problem with youwhen driving Combat the warning signs of stress by getting fresh air and breathing deeple and slowly. Listen to relaxing music Avoid long drives if you can. If you take a long trip stop every few hours for a rest. Before and during a long drive, avoid heavy meals which tend to make a person lethargic Drive in a courteous and considerate manner. Give way at busy intersections and where traffic lanes merge Don't compete or retailgate. If someone's driving annoys you, don't try to educate them. Leave traffic enforcement to the police Don't take other driver's mistakes personally. Avoid honking your horn unless absolutely necessary and, if you must, tap on it lightly Say "sorry", if you make a mistake. An apology can reduce the risk of conflict. If you are being physically threatened, stay in your car and lock the doors. If you have cell phone call the police. Use your horn and lights to attract attention If you think if you are being followed, do not drive home. Go to police station or a busy public place. Don't carry a diffensive weapon, it might provoke a potential assailant.

border crossingHungry Wolf 2008-03-08
첨부 파일:  
First of all let me explain, the 49th parallel is the straight line border between Canada and the United states Of America. It’s the longest friendly international border in the world and for the most part in is really a paperwork exercise although both countries do police the crossings diligently for the obvious reasons. Even though both counties recognise the importance of trade between each other, there are still rules to follow for both Companies and individuals. As a commercial driver you will be asked a series of questions a the Immigration booth. Where do you live? Is there anyone else in the cab with you? Have you ever been arrested? Do you have any guns or firearms? How long have you been in the USA/Canada? What did you buy when you were there? Do you have any meat or vegetables? Do you have any tobacco or alcohol? Dont want to scare anyone but once when i was at the border, i saw a guy being arrested for not delaring a pastrami sandwich, sounds crazy but there you go............... Then you are waved through to an X-Ray machine, then as an individual you are free to go on your way, once you have declared your manifest at customs. However, if you are carrying meat or meat products, you then have to get the meat cleared for import into the USA/Canada. This is done at a Meat Inspection facility, in the USA it’s a building normally quite close to the border complex its self and you HAVE to go there no matter what !!!!! Coming back into Canada, there are several facilities dotted around the country and they are not normally any where near the border. When you cross the border coming north you will stop after clearing immigration and customs, park up and go across to your broker who tells you whether the load or part of the load as to be inspected or not, they also tell you where it has to be inspected. Anyway these border crossings normally have 2 towns. For example: Sweet grass Montana and Coutts Alberta. Two separate towns in the same place and the 2 countries share a customs building, not only are the in separate sides of the building but also on different levels and movement between the 2 is strictly controlled. So when you go South you cross through Sweetgrass and when you cross North you cross through Coutts.

Can I bring in food as a traveler (fruit, cheese, meat, etc)? to USAHungry Wolf 2007-12-23
첨부 파일:  
Many fruits and vegetables are either prohibited from entering the United States or require an import permit (for commercial importers) or a phytosanitary certificate from the country of origin. Every fruit or vegetable must be declared to a CBP Officer and must be presented for inspection - no matter how free of pests it appears to be. Failure to declare food products can result in a $10,000 fine. See special guidelines for produce from Canada below. Meats, livestock, poultry, and their products are either prohibited or restricted from entering the United States, depending on the animal disease condition in the country of origin. Fresh meat is generally prohibited from most countries. Canned, cured, or dried meat is severely restricted from some countries. See special guidelines for animal products from Canada below, and our Q&A on meat, poultry and swine products for a more complete discussion of food items from those sources. Bakery items, candy, chocolate, and cured cheese are generally admissible. Canned goods and goods in vacuum packed jars (other than those containing meat or poultry products)are also generally admissible if being imported for personal use. Dairy items such as milk, yogurt, butter are generally admissible, although this is subject to change, depending on disease outbreaks. Eggs may be admissible, although frequent outbreaks of Exotic Newcastles Disease and avian flu make it very likely that they will be denied entry. Hard cured cheese such as parmesan or cheddar are generally admissible, soft cheeses such as brie and soft curd cheese and cheese in water(ricotta, feta, etc.) are not. Cooked and raw poultry is permitted from Canada except from the province of Saskatchewan. However, to bring poultry products from any province in Canada into the United States, you must have proof of the origin of the poultry. For example, proof of origin would be the grocery stores receipt where the product was purchased, or the label on the product indicates the province in which it was packaged Fish, if it is for your personal use, is generally admissible. Condiments such as oil, vinegar, mustard, catsup, pickles, syrup, honey, jelly, jam, etc., are generally admissible. Fruits and vegetables grown in Canada are generally admissible, if they have labels identifying them as products of Canada. Fruits and vegetables merely purchased in Canada are not necessarily admissible, ie. citrus or tropical fruits such as mangos, which clearly were not grown in Canada because it does not have a climate that supports those crops. (Potatoes from western regions of Canada are currently restricted because of a disease outbreak. While commercial imports are permitted under stringent guidelines, travelers from Canada should avoid bringing raw potatoes with them into the US). The Department of Agriculture has recently relaxed rules for travelers arriving from Canada with food products involving some meat products. Beef and game products are now allowed entry. This includes frozen, cooked, canned or otherwise processed beef, veal, venison, elk, bison, etc. Hunter harvested game, including deer, moose, wild sheep, goats and bison is admissible from Canada for the traveler's personal use if accompanied with a hunting license, tag or equivalent. permit. Meat products from domestic lamb, sheep and goats is still prohibited entry from Canada. Pork and pork products are not admissible from Mexico. Other then the above general guidelines, it is impossible to advise you in this forum about the admissibility of specific food items because it is so susceptible to change. Disease and pest outbreaks, which impact the admissibility status of fresh and packaged food items, occur all over the world at a moments notice. Failure to declare all food products can result in civil penalties. Because CBP inspectors are stationed at ports of entry and along our land and sea borders, they are often called upon to enforce laws and requirements of other government agencies. Because of the complexities of regulations governing the importation of food, CBP officers may need to contact an expert for information about what is or is not admissible. If no expert is available, food may be detained in the interest of preventing possible food-borne diseases into the U.S. This is done to protect community health, preserve domestic plant and animals life, etc. The U.S. Department of Agriculture establishes criteria for the admissibility of plant, dairy and meat products returning with travelers and they have the final say about what may be admitted into the U.S. The USDA web site: Click on Travelers' Tips has somewhat more detailed information for travelers, and they can be contacted at 301-734-8896 for information about the admissibility of plant or plant products.
