How to Make Highways Run Smoother

Highway driving scene from trucking jobs department.
We published this article on another website and thought we would summarize it here so those that follow this blog could read it. When it comes to driving on the highway it seems that even when you leave the city you run into bottlenecks along your route. Out enjoying the open road headed to a new destination. And then it happens. Traffic slows out in the middle of nowhere.

Most of these bottle necks have to do with the large number of trucks that use America's highway system to deliver goods. We need these trucks to move freight across the country. Trucks seem to accelerate slower and certainly have a hard time climbing hills that have even the slightest grade, so a remedy would make travels for the motoring public more efficient.

Some believe it would even make highways safer. The bottom line is everyone wants to get around the trucks. Even trucks want to get around trucks some times. Here are a few things that can help to increase roadway efficiency.

A big help would be if highway spending bills included more passing lanes and climbing lanes. These would help to alleviate traffic backups on highways. This can be especially helpful in areas were climbing is necessary like the Sierra Nevada and and Rocky Mountain regions. Both an empty and a fully loaded tractor-trailer can have a hard time continuing at freeway speeds when they encounter almost any substantial increase in grade.

Passing lanes can act as an auxiliary lane on a two-lane highway. These are very helpful in areas where the traffic volume doesn't require a multi-lane highway. Having a lane for this purpose can give small vehicles the opportunity to pass semi tractor-trailers safely. Many times small vehicles pass trucks illegally when there is no passing lane. This often times ends in an accident.

Climbing lanes are also especially helpful. These lanes are constructed on multi-lane highways and help divert traffic around slow moving vehicles. This is also especially helpful in creating a safer and more efficient highway system.

Hopefully after reading this you can see how roadway efficiency can be increased by the addition of passing lanes and climbing lanes to highways in your state. Some day you may need to vote on a highway spending bill and we hope you can see how spending on these types of projects can help everyone who uses Americas highway system.

Here is a link to the Department of Transportation if you want to keep up on what they are doing with highway planning and other programs.

Looking For A Truck Driving School That Gives?

How's this for giving!

The Holiday Season is upon us! It is a time when we all take pleasure in being with our family and friends, giving and receiving gifts (who doesn’t like gifts?), relishing good food, and enjoying the good feelings that we feel this time of year. Some of truck driving school students will be spending the holidays away from home and CR England and its employees will do everything they can to make the time spent at their facilities enjoyable.

With all the gift giving and receiving its important that we remember some people do not have these things to enjoy this year, and it is up to others to help lift them up.

We invite you once again to help people who are less fortunate than us. Sometimes we get so caught up in our own day-to-day troubles, we forget to be thankful for things that we do have. We take things for granted. We forget that some people are in much worse situations. With the economy still faltering and unemployment at record levels we expect major increases in the number of families seeking our help.

That is where This Years CR England Charity Drive comes in. This year CR England has chosen to help the Candy Cane Store this year. For those of you who are new to this, it works like this--parents who have applied for help and are qualified are given gift vouchers from the Candy Cane Store. The parents then use these vouchers to “purchase” items for their children from the Candy Cane Store. We can help the children by donating items to stock the store. Items that we are requesting are children’s toys, clothing, shoes, toiletries, learning aids, etc. Please bring the items new and unwrapped to one of the Christmas Charity 2009 volunteers.

We also hold a vendor raffle each year. Our vendors are kind enough each year to donate a variety of items for us to raffle off. The proceeds from this raffle go to the Primary Children’s Medical Center. We will also buy food items for the Road Home Shelter with some of our raffle money.

If your attending truck driving school or working for the company during this holiday season please be aware of the charity event that is going on.

CR England Welcomes Truck Driving School Students

CR England Truck
A recent story ran in the Salt Lake tribune, a major newspaper in Salt Lake City, Utah, that discussed truck driving school enrollments. The article pointed out that just about all the local truck driving schools had seen an increase in enrollment since the recession began.

Since that article ran many more stories have surfaced regarding school enrollments. Some schools have had to cap enrollment. For CR England, the job of recruiting qualified truck driving school students is never finished. There are no enrollment caps in place and CR England welcomes anyone considering the truck driving profession to apply. The company is searching coast to coast for new students who want to get training form an industry leader.

CR England Installs Fuel Saving Software

CR England was part of a recent press release by a technology company. That release disclosed information about some recent software upgrades that CR England had made. The release also named Knight Transportation.

CR England along with Knight Transportation recently decided to invest in new software from TMW Systems and Manhattan Associates Carrier Suite. The software is designed to help trucking companies make routing and fuel purchasing decisions.

Here is a quote from Ron Hall, the director of business strategy for CR England, " We are currently fully implemented on Driver & Load [and] on Drop & Swap"

The Driver & Load can make it so drivers do not have to deadhead many miles out of the way for freight when their actually was a load nearby. Hall also said that the software would help with this issue mainly because, "You don’t typically see one planner looking at another guy’s workload. Driver & Load allows us to evaluate moves between markets that make sense."

This software commonly known as "decision support systems software" when implemented completely will give CR England an opportunity to lower fuel costs. Knight transportation will also benefit in a similar fashion.

The implementation and fewer dead head miles will also help with load planning and overall fleet efficiencies and help with truck utilization across geographic markets.

The online news source Transport topics first ran this story about the press release on August 26th, 2009. and also included the information in its August 2th print edition of Transport Topics.

Great Salt Lake Truck Show Highlights

CR England participated in the Great Salt Lake Truck Show Earlier this month. Truck drivers Jobs were put in a positive light at the show when Chairman Dan England and the current Utah Governor spoke about truck driving jobs and the trucking industry as a whole.

They spoke about green jobs and the steps trucking companies like CR England have taken to get going down the path toward a greener industry.  The governor seemed very happy with CR England's participation thus far.

Here are some photos from the show:

trucking jobs showTruck job showCR England at the Drivers Jobs Salt Lake Truck ShowGreen Tractor-Trailer These were just a few of the trucks that were on display. The CR England truck that was shown here had the skirt on the trailer. The skirt is not a fixed skirt so if debris hits it ,it can absorb some of the damage. The skirt has also been proven to increase fuel mileage.

Overall the show was a local hit. A lot of truck drivers came out and those interested in a truck job got to see what the top of the line trucks can look like.

Its Time To Go To Truck Driving School

WSAZ Channel 3 news ran an article about the trucking industry. The article was directed more so to CDL Training and how enrollments are up. This article was highlighted because it seemed to point out the benefits of going and getting the training necessary for a CDL career. The media has almost made unemployment popular. For those who wish to buck the trend, a good CDL school may be the answer.

From the article, trucking schools in West Virginia are seeing increases in program enrollment. The article quoted David Belcher, who was recently laid off. He said " I thought this would be a good job to go into."

Truck driving can certainly be a good career choice.Jobs pay well and companies are always looking for good drivers. Not many other professions pay you to travel and give you the opportunity to see the open road.

Another article was also put out by that also spoke of schools packed with folks that are looking for training to get into the truck driving industry. Overall that article showed how truck driving school can be a step towards a new beginning for many.

Both stories provided salary increments to seriously consider. WSAZ said a driver could expect to earn between $30,000 to $40,000 per year and 11Alive quoted a student who gave an estimate of $40,000. The 11Alive article also discussed the likely hood of finding work after completing school. According to their article, a truck driving school director said, "they have a 90 percent graduation rate and about 95% of their students are finding jobs in the trucking industry.”

That’s right 95% are finding work. That makes the job outlook look pretty good for those students that enroll in truck driving school.

Find CDL Schools The Easy Way

Read this and make the task of finding a quality CDL schools much easier!

 We hope that by the end of this article you will be a more prepared consumer. Getting into the business of trucking is a big step and there is nothing worse than taking your first step in the wrong direction.

Here is a simple fact. When you do an Internet search for trucking schools or CDL Training schools you will find search results filled with hundreds of websites offering something related to truck driving schools. Then you have to wade through dozens of websites that seem to provide mostly advertisements for other truck driving schools. If you take the wrong course you end up bouncing back and forth between advertisements. This will most likely leave you lost.

Well, Let's make it easier than ever before!

First answer this question:

  • Are you committed to making this a new career or are you just looking to improve your skills for a job you already have?

If your looking to make this a new career, than you should focus on the stability of the company doing the training, the quality of the training, their reputation in the industry, and your total costs. When it comes to proper training your life depends on it!
If your just looking to improve your skills for a job you already have then right off the bat you should look for a local training company. Try searches that include your city or state. For example: "Riverside Truck Driving Schools" That can eliminate a lot of the junk out there.

All Right, Your Ready To Start A New Career:

First and fore most cdl training should be the most important piece of the puzzle to you. If your not trained properly you could end up in a bad accident or with a very short driving career. That is why we say your life depends on it! As far as the training goes, someone who is well experienced when it comes to truck driving and truck driving training should train you on recent equipment. 

Next consider the training time. Are you about to attend a license mill, or is the company going to give you plenty of time behind the wheel?

After training you should of course consider your costs. If you can't see prices for tuition, fees and everything else, you might want to walk away now or in your case leave that website. Just think what else is going to be negotiable? Tuition, fees, your safety?

Now that you know how much it costs for tuition, you should also consider other costs like financing, room and board or hotel stays, transportation to the school, amenities etc. Be conscious of the numbers game. It might be $5000 for one school all-inclusive and $4000 for another but you still have to pay for hotel. That makes them the same. So you really have to evaluate the schools and do your due diligence.

Lastly and most commonly where people are taken for a ride, is the promise of employment. Your making a career move so you most definitely need to have a job lined up for when you complete school. Here is a simple fact. If they're not a "School to Hire" organization, then it is not a job guarantee! “School to Hire” refers to a situation where, not if, but when you complete school you have a job with the company who trained you or with another company via a contractual agreement between the school and a carrier. For example you might go to school A, and upon completion, you'll be working for company B. You'll know before you even start school who your going to work for. The other option uses another very common term. "Guaranteed Job Placement" or "Lifetime Placement Assistance", or something along those lines. The long and short of it, they guarantee they will be helping you apply for jobs.    

The Hard Fact:

  • The fact is there are Truck Driving Schools out there that have no intention other than taking your money, getting you a license and sending you packing with a hand full of applications.
Now that you have a little more information about what you should look for than your ready to begin your search to find the school that is going to work for you.


We hope this short article is helpful in navigating the truck driving school maze and wish you the best in your endeavors. If you are interested in an upfront, no funny business approach, from a company that has never laid off a driver in 89 years visit us at

More Truck Driving Jobs With Cap And Trade

According to an article on more truck jobs could be created if recent Cap- and-Trade plans become law. The article written by Matthew Rusling had a great quote from Benjamin Goldstein, a policy analyst with the Center for American Progress, that explained how many new truck driving jobs will be created under the plan.

Goldstein said, "many commercial and industrial buildings will be refurbished, -- workers will install new windows, insullation, and make other adjustments -- to make them more energy efficient"

Goldstein also goes on to say that the
new projects like wind turbine construction will employ all kinds of trades and professionals. He gave a quick example to speak to his point.

"to build and install wind turbines will employ a myriad of professionals and trades persons including engineers, electricians and construction workers, as shipping wind power equipment from abroad is more costly than building it in the United States."

The shear fact that the constuction of these wind turbines will take place means that many
cdl driver jobs will be created to transport components. Also, workers will be needed to prepare the site and crane operators will be needed to stand up the poles.

Guess which industry is going to be tasked with hauling all the supplies to and from the work sites?  That is right, these are the kinds of jobs truck driver s can do. According to Goldstein
    "The jobs will be sustainable for decades on end."

Overall Cap-and-Trade has become a hot issue that affects many industries and professionals. The original article can be found at:

truckdrivingschools will guarantee you a trucking job!

CR England truck driving schools guarantee students who pass their training course a job. Certainly not all truck driving schools can say that. Like most that attend truck driving schools, your probably looking for a truck driving job. If you don't attend a truck driving school that guarantees you a truck driving job most often you will end up at best with a school that offers guaranteed job placement. Trucking Schools

Guaranteed job placement in this economy may just be a guarantee to place a pen and some applications in your hands. There is no doubt when your looking for work the promise of a job can sound like the answer to your problems, but I suggest you step back and mull over your options before making a final decision. Think about this, It is very hard to guarantee job placement when just about every reputable carrier out there has different hiring requirements and in current market conditions most are not even hiring. Think about that before you sign up for something that may just lead you back to the unemployment lines.

A truckdrivingschools that can guarantee you job, is a different story. You will know before you even show up if you have a job. For example at CR England Truck Driving Schools we pre-screen every student to make sure that when they pass the training process they are ready and eligible to work.

Trucking Company Vehicles To Pollute Less in Minnesota

In Minnesota on Friday, May 1, 2009 the state moved to the B-5 bio diesel mandate. The Minnesota Commissioner of Agriculture Gene Hugoson told reporters at a news conference marking the B-5 milestone, "For state and national energy policy it is extremely important we move to less dependence on imported foreign oil." The B-5 bio diesel has a 5% soy additive content. That 5% is an increase from the former B-2 mandate where diesel fuel had a 2% additive content.  The trucking industry uses a substantial amount of diesel fuel so the mandate is a step toward a greener industry.

For clean air advocates this new mandate is definitely a breath of fresh air. In fact this mandate should provide enough of a reduction in pollution to create cleaner air. According to Kelly Marczak of the American Lung Association of Minnesota the higher the B-5 mandate for bio fuels could remove lung irritants and additional quantities of carcinogens from the air. Kelly was quoted saying "This action will prevent 139 tons of particulate pollution and 330,000 tons of life cycle carbon dioxide emissions from entering our air each year."

This is a remarkable reduction, and to put it into a real world example Kelly Marczak of the American Lung Association of Minnesota said that the reduction would amount to removing 55,000 passenger cars from roads, or planting 56,000 acres of pine tree forest.

This information is an excerpt of a great article written by John Croman of KARE 11 news in Minnesota.
