As title says, I'm going to get into LA, dropping a load in early morning, but picking up another late that night. So I might need to find some place for parking.

Any good choice around without surprises from State police officers? TA Ontario, CA is not an option, a bit too far. Thanks in advance!

Maybe the parking lot of the truck stop health clinic. I looked on google maps and see a truck with trailer parked in the parking lot, there is room if you look along the tree line by the sidewalk. Also if a police officer questions you, you can say you need to get some supplies from auto zone which is right next door.

Can also check out rr&m truck parking. no idea what it is or if you have to pay, but looks like there is a lot of parking available according to google maps.

Appreciate the help, Dan! I would try the TSHC. The RR&M parking seems too good to be true, I figure they will collect parking fee as well.

Swift terminal in jarupa valley. There is also a swift drop yard closer to Compton but I don't know the address. Your dm might.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Murderspolywog, thanks! Unfortunately, I no longer work for Swift anymore. Plus the JV terminal, parking can be a mess. Let alone it's further than TA Ontario :)

Got it I was just going off your avatar. If you use google maps satellite view you can find were other trucks have parked. Such as salt lake ave in the city of industry. I would use street view and look for no parking signs.

Good luck been a few years sense I was out there,
