"Fuel Island Review Pilot Georgia Dublin"
Observations about accessibility: "Fuel Island Review Pilot Georgia Dublin"
This Pilot location is laid out on a tract of land too small for easy maneuvering of tractor trailers for fueling purposes. A back up of even three big rigs waiting for fuel causes the last one in line to have its rear close to the road.
Not only is the waiting space short, but the forward pulling space for trucks to park following fueling is way too short. When two or more rigs that have fueled in side-by-side bays have pulled up after fueling, drivers of all trucks except for the one closest to the road must either wait for the closest one to pull out, do some severe jockeying of their rigs past the blocking truck, or make a U-turn to the left to get out. If three drivers side-by-side have pulled up, the driver in the middle must simply wait.
May Pilot never design another truck stop like this one again! If accessibility (before or after the fuel bays) had been part of our grading system, Mike surely would have graded this location down severely for it.
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.
