    Not my truck. I parked and noticed this. Thoughts were 1. That's why you don't park on the end of a row and 2. This is why we can't have nice things.
    I figure the culprit is long gone myself. Doesn't look like anyone has done anything with it, so entirely possible driver doesn't even know yet.

    I've seen three trucks get hit in the last 3 days, it's a daily thing.

    I can't even stand going into truck stops for freaking fuel anymore. Nothing but a giant cluster of people that have no idea how to drive a tractor trailer and have no idea wtf courtesy is. It's a shame you can't park on the end of a line, or anywhere for that matter, without worrying someone will take your front end off because they forget there's 48+ feet of trailer behind them.

    I got hit in a TA parked in the middle of a row of 50+ empty parking spots all around me.

    If the off track doesn’t get you, the tail swing will.

    Been driving tankers for nearly a decade now and still am spooked over how I was able to get a 53' in or out of most places.

    I came up with this idea a few years ago

    Put boat trailer rollers down each side of your truck and trailer and the one parking can just get guided in
