Worsening Parking Crisis Makes Trucking Jobs Frustrating July 27 2016

Post by: K&J Trucking

Anyone who has been on trucking jobs in the last few years knows there is a parking crisis. Trucks have always had a difficult time finding parking spots, but parking shortage is definitely a hot issue. One K & J driver put it like this,  "I find that I often have trouble getting good parking, or any parking at all." And his experience isn't unique. A 2015 study revealed that 90% of drivers reported difficulty finding safe, available parking during the nighttime hours. And 75% of study responders said that they had trouble finding available parking during their legally-mandated rest times.
