    I don't agree with the practice but when I see a loaded chlorine tanker ( driver resupplying sleeper ) in the Kroger parking lot....this is petty.

    And Love's slips seats so someone is always considered on duty. Same with Pilot although their drivers normally just park and sleep around racks while on duty. Same with DuPre.
    In Ft Worth Loves has Musket rack where ethanol is off loaded. Good secure rail yard with several other companies.

    Note that is for div 1.1 1.2 and 1.3. Not for class 3 or any other classes for that matter other then part b. Which allows for short periods of time to be with in 5 feet of the road.

    The company needs to provide you with a secured place to park *their* equipment. If nothing else, maybe they can arrange for you to park in an out-of-the-way area *inside the fence* at a loading rack.
