A domestic series of trucker simulators, which is probably familiar to every gamer in the post-Soviet space. "Truckers" are several dozen licensed models of Russian and foreign cars, native birches and a soundtrack by "Aria". These are bribes to traffic police, chases with bandits and transportation of illegal goods (for which you can get more money). This is an opportunity to build your own transport empire and shift all delivery tasks to hired workers.
The first part of "Truckers" was released back in 1998, the third - in 2009. But most of all noteworthy is the second part of the 2001 series , which received popular recognition and became, without exaggeration, the first driving school for many gamers.

The business is not limited to the usual delivery of goods: you have to carefully park, drive in extreme conditions and even chase with the police.
SERIES 18 WHEELS OF STEEL
18 Wheels of Steel (or "18 steel wheels") is a series of car simulators, which has about a dozen games that were released from 2002 to 2011. The studio SCS Software was again responsible for its development (as you noticed, the Czechs have found their niche and are not going to leave it, filling more than 50% of the truck simulator market with their products).
The games in the 18 Wheels of Steel series feature well-detailed locations, an impressive selection of fictional and licensed trucks, interesting missions, and thanks to the support of modifications, also a lot of user-generated content created over the years. Alas, in terms of graphics, the franchise can no longer stand up to competition, but such trifles are not important to a true trucker.
