    Safety and Truck Stops are not a synonym and are not often grouped together in a positive way.

    It is heartbreaking to hear or read stories of children and adults being ran over in truck stops, mobbed, robbed, or being beaten up. All of us that drive know there are a lot of blind spots around our truck and should realize when walking we need to stay out of the blind spots on other trucks. We also know of distracted driving when looking for a parking place, when tired, and when trying to get stopped when we have pushed our clocks to the limit.

    As the person walking, fueling, or having children in a truck stop we need to take care of our safety so we do not end up on the checked off permanently list. Women I believe tend to be more conscious of where we walk, our surroundings, as well as the lighting.
