    But I'm parked on the side INSIDE the lot, where trucks can still get by going both ways. I'm in the middle of a pack of 6-7 of us parked illegally. Signs say no parking. First time I've had to do it since I started trucking in January.

    PS - I'm bobtail.

    Safety in numbers, right?
     
    Gutter, D.Tibbitt and FlaSwampRat Thank this.

    You’ll probably be fine ( up to Love’s management ). Remember that in case some local tries to overstep his authority & no I don’t condone creative parking.

    Bobtail, go grab a spot where the cars park. Much safer.

    First you should have walked inside and talked to manager. Come dark you will be getting knocked on door by said manager to ask you to leave.
    Depends what loves you at as well. The new loves in South Holland(Chicago) is nuts.

    A couple of loves I've been to recently started enforcing the no parking thing.
    Do like Triple 6 said, find a car spot
