USDOT To Study Lack Of Truck Parking

The U.S. Department of Transportation has finally decided to acknowledge the need for more truck parking… in the most non-committal way possible. The USDOT announced its attention to begin studying the availability of truck parking on a state-by-state basis.

You might think that they have finally woken up and realized the absolute necessity for this sort of action, but no, even now they had to be pushed to it. The study is part of a 27-month surface transportation reauthorization bill that Congress approved last July. It will begin on April 1st and will look at truck volumes in each state and the availability and quantity of parking spaces that those states need.
