    In nearly 17 years of driving I just had to make my own space for the first and hopefully last time. I'm just curious, why do so many drivers fill the off ramps, aisles and no parking areas at the truck stops when I can can almost always find 2 or 3 actual spots?

    Would make sense except the ramp is usually completely occupied by OO's...

    Maybe they’re the smart ones, probably protecting their hoods.

    there are no, "no parking" signs and lines designating travel lane.

    article states driver "left marked portion of ramp", prior to rear ending truck.

    I would say he was parked legal.

    What was your reason?
    That's probably the same reason others use.
    Good luck you don't have to "make" a parking spot again.
