    This is a brand new truck stop where I live. Not open for another week.

    There is no other truck stop close by. Many older residents here have little idea about truckers.

    Yet, already - trucks have run over the cones blocking the entrance, parking - and started dumping bags of trash.

    Yes - plenty of pee stains on the fresh blacktop.

    If you’re a new driver scrolling this forum, please - don’t be part of the problem - respect others properties , towns, neighborhoods.

    This here, is the reason that ‘no truck parking’ signs exist.

    This is why predatory towing is a lucrative business.

    The reason that the ‘NIMBY’ crowd exists, and blocks development of truck parking in their neighborhoods.

    This is why . . . a lot of things.

    Sadly about 90% of these drivers are also the type who will spit in your face, upend a bucket of literal #### on the ground and sweep out a trailer full of trash just to spite you for dareing tell them what to do.

    Seems like this industry mostly attracts pigs anymore.

    Slight correction:
    Spit at a picture of your face. Kind of difficult to spit in your face when they can’t make eye contact.

    Depends on the driver. So of them drivers especially a LOT of the EU ones will happily spit directly in your face. American ones...ehhhh could go either way lol.

    This is why I’d be fine with 100% paid parking. Get caught dumping human waste or garbage or draining your jug in the lot and you’re banned from parking at that chain nationwide. Way too many trashy disrespectful slobs who think they are owed a parking spot because they can breathe and they have a CDL.
