    even though i own a truck i've been doing the quick jobs for a while, so if you're on a european job you get left hand regardless. at the moment i'm just enjoying the freedom of picking and choosing a job to do. once i've earned enough to pay off the loan for the initial truck i got i dont mind getting in to the garage more....but considering i bought a left hand drive truck and ended up causing 40% dmage to it within a few miles i'm not going back to it until i have a bit of cash!! :P

    I was predominately hauling in England as I didn't like the continent. since I kept getting speeding fines. I actually think being a driver is a handicap in this game because the simulated rules of the road are vastly different to the real rules! There's a few loopholes though...

    - Always turn your lights on to avoid fines (not just sidelights). I do this IRL anyway.
    - Police don't care about main beam, other drivers just flash their lights at you.
    - Nobody cares about indicators and ignores them.
    - You can skip red lights without a fine by driving on the wrong side of the road through them.
    - You can also drive on the wrong side of the road for a brief while before you get fined.
    - Screw reverse parking with the trailer, press space.

    nah reverse parking brings in anywhere from 45xp - 800xp depending on your level, type of trailer etc

    Also, if you are quick at parking, brings in more XP as well...it depends on if you just want to drive or get full experience of it. lol

    Is this for Euro Truck or in the BMW drivers handbook?

    I'm that anal about driving correctly in this that when the air-brakes failed last night, I put my hazards on. Shame the AI sat behind me for an hour patiently waiting for me to move :P

    Once I'm on open road though, driving correctly goes. I overtake and undertake where possible, usually shave about an hour off the ETA time

    Some mods, you can get fined for that as well as "Wreckless driving". It will take 10% off each instance.
