More Info About Truck Parking At Listed Places

With tractor trailer parking in high demand -- especially in some areas of the country, it is more important than ever that truckers have safe and legal places to park.

Please be aware that even though a location may be listed in the book as a place where truckers may park, owners and managers of certain locations reserve the right to either limit or eliminate truck parking as they see fit.

Among the ways to help make sure that a truck parking area stays open are to:

  • never leave litter or human waste behind, except in approved receptacles; and

  • leave the area cleaner than you found it.

Please also be aware that some restaurants have lots that are specifically geared for 4-wheeled vehicles, so parking for tractor-trailers may be extremely limited.

Always look for "No Truck Parking" signs.
