When I have used a moving van (3 or 4 times in 20 years), I was always told by the van company to stop at weigh stations. Whenever I pulled into a weigh station, I was simply waved on through with a smile. (So I played it safe but was not delayed.) But when I traveled, 9 of 10 weigh stations were not even open, so I only pulled in once every 1000 miles or ...

The short answer is yes, larger trucks like moving trucks will be required to go through a weigh station in some states; AAA has a guide to weigh station requirements in Canada and the United States, and you should also ask the agency you are renting from. You will not necessarily have to stop at the weigh station for an inspection, as modern weigh stations ...

My experiences in Baja and BCS have run directly contrary to the folklore about corruption in Mexico. I drove the peninsula, eschewing warnings against driving at night, with only a few regrets. It is a much longer drive than it appears on a map. Infrastructure is uneven. You may assume that it's a very relaxed, two day trip if you're accustomed to the ...

It will give you the road condition, visibility condition and any problem, like road closure, in real time.

A simple rule: check the weather regularly, and find a place to stay before it starts snowing. Once the storm is over, the road crews will have the highways cleared within a few hours. And if you wait until traffic starts to crawl, you will probably find that there's no place to stay. While people from northern states like to think of themselves as ...

Generally speaking American and Canadian roads are fairly well cared for in the winter. Interstates and Autoroutes even more so than smaller rural roads. The only time I'd be worried (I live in the greater DC/Northern Virginia area) about making that trip, even in my own Mustang, is during an actual snow storm/blizzard. Even then, I'm originally from ...

There may be a lot of snow, and expect some snow anyway. I remember doing a similar trip around Christmas 2010. There was a big snowstorm right after Christmas and almost no bus would drive us from Philadelphia to New York, and some friends doing it by car were slowed down because of it. Anyway, Quebec City has a lot of snow anyway (you can see the snow ...

AIT/FIA act as guarantors for the Carnet de Passages en Douane and the FIA do not include Pakistan in an extensive list of countries under “Where to get your CPD”. Seems may not be available in Pakistan, but it might be worth contacting Automobile Association of Pakistan and Motorsport Association of Pakistan as these are both FIA members. The RAC has some ...

The Grand Canyon is wonderful, but a long way from I-40. Meteor Crater is close, and very underappreciated. It really is a cool spot. You will learn, relax, and have time to hike around a little. Which are all things that are good when on a long trip. I'm about to do a similar trip, from Winston Salem to Phoenix, along I-40 most of the way. In Arizona, ...
