    I have been parking on the Car Side of the Rest Areas away from the building in a 22 ft straight truck
    Has anyone been hassled by the police
    I haven't been just wondering because the Truck side is always full

    Parking has been an issue forever and the more trucks the more they have a problem. I had to finally park at a Wal-Mart last night but a few trucks joined me

    Benton, off all the things in trucking. Please don't park in Walmart thats very unsafe place becuase in most cases , the miscreants of society tend to congregate in or around wall marts .. you are better off in your nearest truck stop at the consumer side since they accept Straight Truck

    Wait. I thought truck drivers are the miscreants of society.

    I park in any places other than Truck Stops if I can help it. The truck stops are getting nastier and nastier. Last time I parked at the J in Walton KY I walked between my truck and the trailer next to me and I almost stepped in a fresh pile of poop with toilet paper next to it right there in the parking lot. Not to mention the urine smell. UGH. Some truck drivers are truly the miscreants of society. Walmart is my first choice.

    I have been to some nasty truck stops as well. I have never understood why people piss or crap all over the ground. We would not do that at home. Just sucks because people think all truck drivers are the same way. Not always true. Crazy stuff.
