WoT sign.png
Hotel California Oakland One of the landmarks in Oakland, the California Hotel was changed in the game due to copyright issues, having located close to I-580, while the position of the two signs for the hotel were reversed, with "Hotel" being on top, while "California" being on the bottom, resulting the sign says "Hotel California". The in-game sign labeling makes an obvious reference to the popular 1976 song of the same name by the Eagles.
Hotel CA.png
Remember the Road Here? Oxnard In the north of Oxnard, near the Sell Goods depot outside CA 126, there is an electronic sign on a worn dead-end road that says "Remember the road here?". This is a reference to the previous road network of Oxnard prior to the map rescale from version 1.5.

South Park Garbage Bins Colorado Springs

(Fairplay)

In the scenic town of Fairplay, there are four colored garbage bins lined up by the side of the road, left next to them is a school sign board.


This is mostly a reference to the 1997 American animated sitcom, South Park, where the garbage bins are based on the four main characters of the show; the first bin is based on Stan Marsh, the second bin is based on Kyle Broflovski, the third bin is based on Eric Cartman and the fourth bin is based on Kenny McCormick. The placement of the sign and the garbage bins are a reference to the show's opening title sequence, to which, Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny are waiting for the school bus on their way to school. The show's setting is mostly based on the real-life South Park in Park County, Colorado, where the town of Fairplay is located in. The key differences of the setting between the show and reality is the town of Fairplay in the show is also named South Park as the whole grassland flat, instead of its real name in reality.

Chimney Rock Road.png
Earl's Feed Store Durango

(Pagosa Springs)

In Pagosa Springs outside of Durango, there is a business called "Earl's Feed Store".


This is obviously a reference to the 1975 song, Wolf Creek Pass by C. W. McCall. In the song, a trucker named Earl loses the brakes of his truck while descending the Wolf Creek Pass in US 160, and ends up "bashed into a feed store in downtown Pagosa Springs".

This is actually a reference to the fictional martial arts studio "Rex Kwon Do" from the 2004 American comedy film, Napoleon Dynamite, which was set in Idaho, mainly in Preston (although Preston is not present in the game, as it is located on the north of Logan in real-life). The sign for the dojo also references the studio's owner Rex from the film, such as his eight-week program, his first rule about the buddy system and his iconic order to "Bow to your sensei!". The man doing a kick on the sign is cosplayed by SCS Software employee, Jakub Mraz, whose his surname is used as the dojo's namesake. Jakub is also wearing the same outfit as Rex from the film.

Sharlie.png
Brian O'Conner Coeur d'Alene In a cemetery in Coeur d'Alene, there is a grave for a person named Brian O'Conner.


This is obviously a reference to the character of the same name from the Fast & Furious franchise, which was played by the late Paul Walker. The grave's tombstone also lists and corresponds Paul's birth date and the date of Paul's death (12th September 1973 - 30th November 2013). A similar grave can also be found in Lakeview, Oregon.

Brian O'Connor.png
SCS Constructions Grangeville In the north of Grangeville, there is a business called "SCS Constructions". The company name is a nod to SCS Software, the creator of American Truck Simulator. Despite the name sounds like an construction company, the player cannot take jobs from there nor attempting to deliver and dropping off a cargo to them. Another company with a similar nod on its name is featured as an active company in Euro Truck Simulator 2, called SCS Paper.
SCS Constructions.png
Old Spiral Highway Lewiston In the southbound lane of US 95, just before the Lewiston Hill weigh station, there is an unmarked road that connects from US 95 to ID 128 in north of Lewiston. The road is very twisty, providing a challenging alternate route down the Clearwater escarpment.


The road is mostly based on the famous and scenic-grade Old Spiral Highway, a former 10-mile segment of US 95 that was opened in 1917, and was decommissioned in 1977, when it was replaced by the current alignment of US 95.

Spiral Highway.png
Sebor Field, Greenline Park Nampa Similar to the "Sebor's Market" easter egg in California, there is a second easter egg referencing the CEO and CTO of SCS Software, Pavel and Petr Šebor, which can be found in Idaho. Their surname is named for a field in Nampa, known as "Sebor Field". This can be seen in a sign located outside of the field, which advertises the baseball game between ATS vs ETS2, hosted by SCS Baseball League. The sign also mentions that this field is located in Greenline Park, the word "Greenline" is a reference to the name of the building in which SCS Software is headquartered.
SCS Baseball League.jpg
RyaStream Pocatello In Pocatello, there is a farm with a red barn that has an "R" logo on the wall and a man standing in front of it with a selfie stick. The "R" logo is based on the logo used by a popular video game streamer on Facebook, RyaStream, whose streams simulator games including American Truck Simulator. The man taking the selfie is a common black male pedestrian model that is found everywhere in-game, the man is likely acting as one of Rya's fans.

Car playing music with a dancing man Twin Falls

(US 93)

At US 93 in Hollister between Twin Falls and Jackpot, there is a car parked at a weigh station with the door open, playing music, and a man dancing next to it. This is probably a reference to the SCS Software employee, Oscar Lee, where he stopped in Hollister in his rental car during the SCS 2019 Road Trip and started dancing to the music on the radio before driving back to the airport to drop off the car. Oscar is actually a big fan of the radio station, Trance FM. The beat of the music is similar to Romanian DJ and record producer Manuel Riva's "Mhm Mhm", remixed by Dave Andres.

Dance for Pedro Twin Falls

(I-84)

Similar to the "Mraz Kwon Do" easter egg, another easter egg referencing Napoleon Dynamite can be also encountered in Idaho, via a billboard that says "Dance for Pedro", located in the south side of I-84, just on the east of Twin Falls. This billboard references the character Pedro Sánchez from the film, who is Napoleon's best friend. Pedro's face is shown as an in-game redraw in the billboard, while the sign's text is a play on the memetic "Vote for Pedro" slogan for Pedro's class president campaign, with the "dance" referring to the scene of Napoleon's famous dance routine to Canned Heat by Jamiroquai near the end of the film.
Vote for Pedro.png
Evel Knievel Ramp Twin Falls Visible from the Perrine Bridge, just on the northeast of Twin Falls, near the Mormon temple, there is a long, unmarked dirt road that runs through the Snake River Canyon, all the way to I-84; upon reaching the end of the first section of the road, there is a ramp, attempting to jump over the ramp will result the player receives 100% damage on their truck. It is possible to survive the jump without damage mods. Flying to the other side of the canyon is impossible, but upon falling into the canyon, a road will appear in the river; if one sticks the landing with less than 100% damage, one can follow this secret road to I-84, which it meets at-grade on the south side of the highway (care is advised when entering the freeway; getting hit at this point can result in full damage, requiring a tow).


This typical road is a reference to the American stunt performer Evel Knievel, where in 1974, Knievel attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon in a steam-powered rocket motorcycle, the Skycycle X-2; he was unsuccessful, due to the cycle's drag chute deploying early. The earthen ramp remains to this day.

With the 49X (pictured here), starting from the beginning of the ramp approach road, one can reach 80 mph at launch and land with 96% damage.

UFOs Las Vegas

(Rachel)

At NV 375 (also known as the 'Extraterrestrial Highway') on the scenery town of Rachel, there is a pair of mysterious bright lights flying from the mountains to the west of the settlement during the night. Several players believed to be UFOs, but they are not proven to be real, as they do not make any noise, and using a map editor, it can be found that they are just lights, and not modeled objects.


This is likely a reference to the fact that in real life, Rachel is the closest settlement to Area 51, a highly secretive Air Force facility that allegedly holds alien spacecraft.

A small obstacle course is very well hidden in the maze of warehouses in Ogden's Freeport Center. North of the Wallbert warehouse are two railroad spurs that end at the side of the road, with box cars on both tracks; between them is a gap just wide enough to get a truck through, which is marked with a few traffic cones. After passing through this gap, one of the tracks opens up, and can be followed to the road that accesses the Sell Goods warehouse (access from there is blocked off by a train). Turning left off of the tracks, a crossroads will soon be reached; the ways straight and right are blocked, forcing another left turn. At the end of the road accessed here is an obstacle course consisting of a winding, narrow loop marked by traffic cones. A sign says that there will be a one second penalty for each cone hit, however it's up to the player to keep time. Another sign points to hard and easy challenges, but being a loop, it doesn't matter which is chosen.
