    When a parked truck gets hit and no one sees, what does the driver of the hit truck do?

    Hope he has a low collision deductible. A call to local LEO may or may not get a police report, depends on if it is on private property.

    think whats needed is truck stops being able to expand or just building more truck stops is there some kind of monopoly on building there or something, cause it pretty obvious there's more needed.

    Up there it’s the locals and the eco folks that are putting the kibosh on expansion and or building of new stops.

    To sum it up: Not in my backyard. We want your goods, then we want your pollution causing cancer making trucks out of here. Lived in Seattle when I was a kid, it was bad then.

    that's everywhere not just up there in hippiville. And i tend to agree with them. When drivers stop dumping bottles of urine out, stop leaving bags of feces behind, and stop dumping their trash out the window, communities may start welcoming them. Basically there is so much trash in this industry that no one wants us around, can't blame them for that.

    Heck grocery stores and Wal-Mart's might even let us start shopping there again if drivers could manage to pull in and out without tearing down light poles and ripping up landscaping.

    Just this morning i saw three separate drivers piss on the customers parking lot with a portajohn oin plain sight 75 feet away. This behavior is why no community wants us around.

    Yep, I'm a driver, and want the general trucking population nowhere near me or my home. Bunch of nasty, lazy, disrespectful louts. I can't stand truck stops or anywhere else truckers park, it's disgusting filth. I never get mad at a business that cuts truck access off, I get mad at the drivers ruining it for us all. Usually hard to tell if it's a homeless encampment or not where truckers park. Sad.

    You must park at terminals to rest and get fuel?
