    Iowa has them also in a couple rest areas between Des Moines and Iowa City. Supposed to be sensors for open parking spaces. If you drive on 35 north in Minnesota. There is a rest area just before Minneapolis that has a sighn that says how many open spaces there are. I believe its supposed to end up being something similar. I know they are the last spots parked on.

    Here is a quote from the article @Hawkeye72 linked above.

    Nearly 90 percent of all crashes involving truck drivers are because of fatigue.

    Not even close.

    And putting in an expensive sensor system that is broken 6 months later is useless to any driver.
    Oh look, it says there are 31 spaces available at a rest area 120 miles away. You get there and lo and behold, all full with 25 trucks on the exit and entrance ramp.
