    Truck parking has been an issue for quite some time, leaving some drivers few options when it is time to stop for breaks. This can lead drivers to park in questionable areas. Most drivers try to plan ahead, but unforeseen delays in route can often put a driver in a position to get creative when it comes to parking. Finding adequate safe parking can be a challenge, but there are always better, safer options than parking on the shoulder of the interstate for a ten hour break.

    Trains run on tracks. Trucks run on roads. They are not interchangeable, although many times their paths will cross, you normally wouldn’t consider driving on the tracks. The last place a truck driver wants to find him or herself is stuck on the railroad tracks, even worse, to be driving on the tracks.

    Let me tell you, it is an eerie feeling filled with anxiety and doubt if you find yourself driving on railroad tracks.
