    I was at a Shipper the other day got there arround 12:45 my load was spose to be ready # 14:00

    Ok no joke:biggrin_2552: i got out of there # 22:00 and they (LG) Fort Worth.TX


    Would not let anyone in the building to use the restroom.

    I drank very little that day and ate nothing, to avoid a accident.

    Does anyone know if that's legal for them to do that.

    I mean a portable toilet would be enough.


    There are deffinatly health issues here. And i have seen restrooms with signs saying

    "NO TRUCK DRIVERS ALLOWED EMPLOYEE'S ONLY RESTROOM"

    Have any of you experienced this at shipper or recievers?

    :biggrin_25510: I wonder if the health dept cares that were being denied.

    Well with the condition that some so called professional drivers like to leave restrooms in can you really blame them?

    Off hand I cant say that I have ever seen anything that required a restroom to be provided. Its probably one of those things that will vary from state to state has far has laws go. Has for not letting drivers into the building that can also be security, safety, or insurances issues.

    To be honest i dont think that most of the mess you find at "TRAVEL CENTERS" is from truck drivers, i think that most of that mess is from the genral public.

    I have seen young punks go into stalls and piss everywhere,, no respect and they know there not going to be back there,, truckers know there here today there tomorrow and most i would like to think have some respect for the next person that is going to use the toilet.

    It's a shi** Subject....

    That doesn't sound right, but I have no idea what the laws are.
    IMHO If they are not going to allow you to use their bathrooms; then they need to be ontime, everytime. Making you wait 8 hours is unacceptable.:biggrin_25510:

    they can do whatever they want and make any law they want in "THEIR OWN" building, I kniw it's kinda messed up but that's the way it is! anyway, why didn;t you just go and pee somewhere else like in the back of the building or something?

    As disgusting as it may be, this is a prime example for why some drivers use pee bottles.

    I have been to a couple that won't allow entry into the building but they at least had Porta Potty's for the drivers to use. Guess they have the same view as most of the general public's view of us we are not even worth allowing to use a normal restroom. Pretty sad excuse for a business if you ask me.:biggrin_2552:

    I got to a dock at 1 in the afternoon. I did not leave the dock until 2:30 am and they refused to allow access to the restroom. It was -16 and not inclined to walk to nearest location.

    Another note, end of the week, Supposed to have been a drop and hook. No food in truck headed home.

    Come on now people, are you messin' with my mind, or what. Are you that polite that you would not just wee wee 'tween truck/trailer as you do on an on-ramp? No wee wee bottle in your sleeper? Just out of curiosity, where did you end up going wee wee when you got out of there?
