    Virginia has always been anti-trucker. The police know full well there's not enough parking due to Elogs, so that's used to generate money.

    They didn't start ticketing truckers for parking on the side of the road after this accident. They've been doing it for years.

    Also, that accident happened pretty close to the huge Petro on 81. I've never been there and not found a place to park.

    The interesting thing I have seen with CDL life reporting? Is the interesting reporting. Stuff is left out of the stories. Or the descriptions are off.
    Take them at your leisure.

    Absolutely.

    One of the most stupid, dangerous actions you can choose , unless the vehicle is immobilized.

    I would hope all states crack down on the practice - 4 or 18 wheeler.

    They pretty much have to write a ticket if there is a wreck or fatality.

    Grinds my gears to see someone pulled off along the road within a mile of an exit were they could park safely. It ought to be a $10,000 fine and impound the vehicle if it turns out the vehicle is operable and was parked voluntarily.

    Far as exits, they are different, some on-ramps are safe or there's a wide pull-off, but in general off-ramp parkers need to be carted away for mental aptitude tests.
