    They can't anymore. Because they're on SB. Is their BS.

    I must live a charmed life. Always get a spot, never pay.
    I do start early though. 600 mile day, I'm parked for free at a J. Could have parked in the spot right next to the one you numb skulls pay for, but since I have the cats, look for one with less traffic.

    The next thread for OP will be "Does anyone else get their truck AFU at the TS?"

    This is why I swore I would never park at the J in SLC again. People park on the end of the row and it's literally impossible to get out. It's to the point I don't even want to stay in truck stops anymore. Just when I think I've found a spot where there's no possible way to get blocked in, somebody proves me wrong.

    Parking in the middle of a lot 4 deep off the scale, potentially causing a wreck...no problem! Driver in his bunk minding his own buisness having a few puffs of weed? OMG better call the cops to appease my twisted sense of morality

    Which one is the bigger threat to the motoring public? Which one is more likely to kill a family of four?

    As much as it annoys me when creative parking happens — The man smoking weed in a bunk has no business operating a commercial vehicle.
     
    Tb0n3, IluvCATS and Brickwall Thank this.

    Just stop. When that driver wakes up he will be as sober as your grandma heading to church. The bigger threat is that 70 foot vehicle everyone has to maneuver around
