Truck Drivers Reveal Which Towns They Refuse To Stop In
Truck Drivers Reveal Which Towns They Refuse To Stop In

Dr. Seuss said it best... "Oh the places you'll go." It leads to great ideas of freedom and whimsy and daring. Oh the places we'll ALL go and see and explore. We all have that travel bucket list we crave to check off one by one. It's always fascinating to experience new places but sometimes those new places leave the wrong kind of memory. Memory? Heck, they leave nightmares. And who best to give us the rundown of the worst places than the people who travel for a career. The ones who don't fly over but literally land and rest in a town.

Redditor _Jindivid wanted the truck drivers out there to speak up asking... Truck drivers of Reddit, what city or town do you absolutely refuse to stop in? Get ready to update those lists y'all.

DON'T FEEL THAT THUNDER!

Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

Forget it. Its a rather small city, buried in the mountains, but DAMN. Stop there, and you're likely to lose the wheels right off your truck.

Australian here, I stopped in thunder bay 10 years ago for a night. Pretty quiet town then. The vehicles all ok. I guess meth has hit there hard. Did have some sketchy stops but that wasn't one of them.

I'm going there for a couple days this summer for a wedding :/

New York City. The bridges were built before trucks and it's a pain to drive in.

CAN'T STOP-WON'T STOP!
CAN'T STOP-WON'T STOP!

Former trucker. I think that Amarillo, Texas is on the "will never stop" list for many truckers, and the "will always stop" for others, for the same reason.

I always noticed a shocking number of lot lizards there. Like, I'd maybe see one or two per night in other cities. I'd see 5-8 per hour in Amarillo.

OH THE PLACES YOU'LL GO...

I travel a lot and have only come across three places where it really felt I was in danger. Truck stop in Arkansas just before Memphis, truck stop outside of Shreveport and a truck stop outside of Waco.
