    I'm just listing the ones along my route. Those are out of my jurisdiction, but good to know as well.

    They have absolutely no responsibility to provide you with a place to park. Why do drivers think they can park anywhere they want? I can't wait for them to ban truck parking at all their stores.

    He's talking about a staging area for Walmart trucks, not saying they are responsible for providing other trucks free parking.

    It's not their job to provide a staging area area for them. They don't want to clean up the litter and piss bottles.

    I’m not talking about Stores. I’m careful when parking at stores. I try not to unless I’m shopping. I’m talking about staging areas at the DCs. There’s always right and wrong. Then there’s reality. Too many DCs are in depressed areas. No parking nearby. I’m not complaining for myself. I hardly ever have a problem finding parking. I am one of those Drivers who thinks I can park anywhere I want. And I do. At my own risk. Nobody’s business but my own.

    It should be their responsibility to the surrounding area. Most everyone else does. Walmart doesn’t, because they’re so big no one challenges them. Most of the areas they build DCs in are just happy to get the tax base. Knowing that Walmart is now involved in Politics, something that Sam Walton was against. I can’t help to think maybe the Politicians aren representing their areas as good as they should be. I’ve been watching this crap go on in Robert La for 15 yrs. No Parking signs everywhere. Yet Drivers are parked on ramps, shoulders, right in front of people’s houses on 190. That’s the reality.

    No the reality is you can PC to a legal place to sleep. The police need to start ticketing and towing these morons that are parked illegally.
