Nope you can drive anywhere. Just a heads up. If you go to Monterrey they have a surplus of cardboard which you can take to cities with a demand for it. This item currently has a bonus for hauling it.

Mexico supplies Messicans. America demands cheap workers.

Maybe haul some people smuggling for the trip back..

Where can I see how much freight I can haul?

It currently defaults to 40.000lbs. Do I just leave it at that?

I've been taking runs, but I can't seem to make much cash. Is it because I'm such a new driver? Or, do need to figure this game out more?

Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, unless you're willing to risk a ticket. Up to you!

Took a look at your route history, here's my advice:
1. Don't haul general merchandise - it pays the lowest. Always select a cargo type.
2. When selecting a route, first go to "game statistics" in the driver menu sidebar, then "city statistics" - pay attention to what cargo the city you are in supplies, and match it up with a city that demands it. If you have a few choices, choose each city and hit "calculate" - take note of the total amount you'll get paid and the $/mile. Don't forget to change the cargo type before calculating...
3. The routes you're selecting right now are just too short. Pick something mid-range. Don't go cross country until you get a good feel of things and/or a better truck, but the short ones aren't worth it unless you're playing enough to get 2-3 done in a day.

If you want some more guidance on choosing routes, go to the company page and select a few of the top users - check out the "view routes" tab to see how they're doing it.

It's a simulation of what being a trucker might be like. Seems pretty accurate.
You can only drive so many miles in an hour, or as fast as your truck will go, and you are only allowed 10 hours on service before you have to take a break.
