    Hos has been lifted, gov is prepared for us to deliver necessities and supplies to fellow Americans, I'm all in but who's taking care of us? Up and down 95 all the truck stops no hand sanitizer in dispenser... Drivers lounges closed which I understand why but what do we do when showers get closed? In PA all rest areas for truckers are shut down, so truck stops will have an Overflow problem including reserved parking? Do we park on the highways shoulders awaiting a drunk driver to smash into us or get towed? Seems that when we are needed to supply we can drive as much as we want but as far as taking our health and safety into consideration that goes out the window? Am I the only one here?

    nothing has changed about being smart and safe on the road. It's not their job to make sure you stop at a regular store to get stuff. While Some places are closing their doors. Many others are opening them. Such as Texas Roadhouse. You don't really need hand sanitizer if you are smart and practice common sense. Or even just carry an extra pair of work gloves. Use them at the fuel pumps and Truck Stops. Wash your hands before eating...etc. Or heck as often as needed. Plan your trip correctly so you're not stuck on the side of the road. Not sure why you feel that things are different now for common sense than before this virus.

    I know how to wash my hands and always do with warm water and soap, you're missing the point... They lifted hos on us in preparation of a shutdown and us to continue delivering supplies, we Should be provided with basics is all I'm saying for our efforts during this crisis

    which is why they are keeping open the rest areas...etc. To Truckers only. Allowing you safe havens to get to.

    They should be open if our hos rules have been lifted and if anything there needs to be more parking which truck has funds but I was just on 95 in northern Florida and there's still hundreds of trucks on the should of the off and on ramps on i95 open to get hit by drunk drivers, still a parking issue... If anything we need much more parking and they should be open for us, maybe state to avoid congregating and remain in our trucks but give us parking

    for Trump’s budget includes $1 trillion for infrastructure, including more truck parking

    if people are not doing proper trip planning and end up parking on the side of the road that is on them. I'm in Florida, and saw plenty of open spots at the PFJ and TA in Sefner just this morning. so it is all about planning.

    I agree ,if hos is about safety why do they lift the rules when they decide its an emergency ? Because hos is all about CONTROL!!
