18wheelerz is an application which simulates the problems facing an owner-operator long-haul truck driver. Your task is to safely drive a 18-wheel tractor-trailer combination from Los Angeles to New York City on time, trying to make a profitable trip. You can make a good living hauling freight coast-to-coast without exceeding the legal load limit and if all goes well, you obey the speed limits, and stop each night for eight hours sleep you'll make the time schedule. On a good trip you will be able to earn well over $1,000. However, even the best drivers run into occasional streaks of bad luck and may barely break even, and sometimes costing themselves money. Bad weather, road conditions or a flat tire can place you behind schedule and eat up your profits. You may try to increase your profits by skimping on sleep, driving fast, or carrying an overweight load. However, pushing too hard raises the risk of a traffic accident, and you will be fined if you are caught breaking the law.
