Observation about exit: "Fuel Island Review Pilot Georgia Augusta"
This is another one of those Pilot Travel Centers with a funnel-shaped exit. All of the trucks exiting from the fuel bays must angle toward a central exit that is much narrower than the width of the fuel bay area. This can be extremely inconvenient for drivers exiting from bays anywhere other than the one dead center in the exit lane, as they have to wait for drivers who have pulled forward after fueling to leave first. What would have been the harm in designing the exit to allow drivers to exit straight forward? It looks to us as though there is room to broaden the exit.
Did you know that you as a professional truck driver can write a review -- like the one on or linked from this page -- to help other truckers in the worldwide trucking community? You can even earn money in so doing.
