Viewpoints are locations where the driver can trigger an in-game “cutscene” that showcases the nearest point of interest to the player. They are identified by a green, 3D film-camera icon and marked with a Viewpoint ico.png on the map. There are a total of 70 viewpoints in American Truck Simulator and 50 viewpoints in Euro Truck Simulator 2 at this moment.

When approaching and stopping at a viewpoint, the player must turn off their vehicle. The player then presses 'ENTER' in order to activate the viewpoint. When the cutscene is playing, the player can press 'ESCAPE' or watch the cutscene. The player can play the cutscene again.
