    Well Detroit is bad Ive gone through there several different directions but my first trip to Montreal on Tuesday took out an airbag on my lift axle by the time I got back to our yard.

    Most state of Michigan have worse roads then Montreal, yeah downtown area when you going on that bridge above regular street is terrible BUT you can take 640 and enjoy nice ride, in Michigan or Illinois don't have that many options

    Route 40 through Montreal has to be one of the worst but Interstate 69 and I75 in Michigan are a close second. I dread using I69 but my company uses the Port Huron/Sarnia border crossing alot so I don't have choice. If I was an owner operator I would stay out of Michigan to save my equipment !

    I 90 between Buffalo and Cleveland has a patch thats bad enough for the to reduce the speed limit.

    Investing in a good tractor seat will save your back.

    Went through there last summer on way to Newfoundland for a holiday.
    Broke a spring on my camper trailer. Don't think we were able to go faster than 30 kph due to traffic.
