I've added the most recent suggestions and well as adding some more that I thought of, and I also sorted the entries into categories.

Scania trucks are the best, but the Peterbilts are good too.
Road signs are just as important as the road itself.

@AnnaKarelia It is. I'm actually surprised it wasn't already on the list. Thank you!

Since it seems to be a highly requested thing, I've added the abbreviations for the states of the United States as well as both the two letter country code and the vehicle registration code for the 26 European countries that appear in ETS2. If I have something wrong, please let me know!

@supersobes in the US highways section how about the Seven mile bridge(7MB or SMB),I don't actually know how it is abbreviated but you might know
FMOD sound modder and currently learning to make my own 3D models,yet i'm fine at porting PTTM/Haulin mods into ATS/ETS2 with fixes.I do not take requests on new trucks,it will be a waste of time.

Is that an actual abbreviation though? Whenever I see anyone write about the Seven Mile Bridge, they just spell it out. That said, I don't think I've even seen that bridge referenced on this forum before. We've got a long way to go until the Florida Keys are even in ATS.

I may suggest FRC, an agreement for perishable goods transport in Europe. Which is shown with a sticker with the FRC expiry date. And also LZV, Lang-LKW, Double for the 25.25m truck-trailer combination in Europe.

@JUseeTV Sure, I can add those. Do you by chance know what terms the letters "FRC," "LZV," and "LKW" stand for so I can include that also? From what I've found, LKW stands for "Lastkraftwagen," which is German for "Trucks." It also seems that LZV stands for "Logistik Zentrum Verden," which translates from German to "Logistics Center Verden." I can't seem to find out what "Verden" means though. I can't find anything at all about the literal definition/translation of "FRC" either.

@harishw8r Those are some good ones! I'll add those!

"Lastkraftwagen" is correct. Verden is a city in Germany. But I doubt that it is about this.

The German Wikipedia suggests that "LZV" means "Langere en Zwaardere Vrachtautocombinatie", this is a term from the netherlands for a EuroCombi:
