In an attempt to make mountain driving a little safer for truckers and RV’ers, R&R Publishing Inc. has been collecting and publishing information about mountain passes and steep grades since 1993.
Dangerous Mountain Driving
The Mountain Directory eBooks tell you where the steep grades are. They show how long they are, how steep (%) they are and whether the road is two lane, three lane, or four lanes. It will also show if there are escape ramps, switchbacks, sharp curves, speed limits, etc. With this information, one can know ahead of time what a pass is like. An informed decision can be made about whether to go over or around. If you decide to go over, perhaps the cool morning hours would ease the strain on the engine and transmission during the climb. Unhooking the towed vehicle would make the climb and the descent easier. Knowing what lies ahead is half the battle.
Travel with safety – safety from knowledge and information about navigating through the Mountain Grades and Terrain.
