    Seen a few 2 hour limit sign like in a speedway and pilot. Do they actually enforced them? Or they just put the sign up to make the land owner or resident happy

    I saw two signs at a Pilot in NY the other day: 3 hour limit and no idling. I also saw about 40-50 trucks idling with their lights off. Guess they're taking 3 hours naps.

    The no idling sign is probably about ny's no idle law. I've read land owners and businesses can face enforcement headaches for allowing idling in their premises.
    Not sure if ny is enforcing it anymore since I don't run that way much, but they used to be fairly aggressive about it.

    The Pilot in Springfield, IL has 2 hour limit parking signs. I took a ten there. Nobody said anything.

    I think most of the time limits are imposed by the city those stops reside in. I've never had a problem taking a ten at a stop with time limit signs posted. You want me gone, you're gonna have to come out and make me move. I'd imagine the people working at the Pilot or whatever just don't give a rip.

    Actually that is the case in Springfield. Pilot posted that to satisfy the NIMBY neighbors. The local police don't ever come in there to enforce it and according to what the pilot employees told me, they're not paid enough to bother drivers like that.

    The Pilot in Caselton (I-90 x12) and the Pilot in Newburgh (I-84 x6) have those signs. I've never had any issue parking or idling there.

    Over night there all the time.
    If people are UNSURE when they see the signs, why don't they go ask the manager ? Wouldn't they know the best answer?
