Rand McNally today released the new edition of its printed Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas.
Designed for professional truck drivers, the Motor Carriers' Road Atlas has been used by truckers for more than 40 years. Each edition includes updated state and national truck-accessible roadways; the latest state-by-state regulations; fuel tax charts; restricted routes, and more.
The new edition, which comes in paperback as well as a spiral-bound version with write-on/wipe-off laminated pages, is available at travel centers, bookstores, on e-commerce sites, and on the Rand McNally Store. It retails for $19.95.
“The Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas has been a trusted tool for professional drivers for decades,” said Aaron Dannenbring, CEO of Rand McNally. “In addition to focusing on electronics and vehicle technology, Rand McNally will continue to research, update, and publish this valuable staple."
Each year, Rand McNally updates and enhances the atlases’ maps and contents, focused on changes that affect the professional driver. Key updates this year include:
