So many times we see a fellow driver do something that makes us scratch our heads. So let's have a little fun here and ask some why just why questions.

Why? Just Why would pull in to a truck stop spot tractor first?

"Sometimes" just faster at the time, and easier backing back out later lol plus privacy, you ain't sitting door to door with others?

I’ve done it three times I think.

Reason for each time was the same: Too tired to back after a really long day, so I deduced it was safer pulling in.

Sometimes they will do it also so their sleeper isn't next to a loud running reefer trailer all night long.

A refrigerated trailer.

To avoid the one week wonders taking off your bumper. To tired to back, scared someone would nose bomb it while you was setting up to back. To avoid the sound of the reefer or the guy who just idles for the hell of it. Or the bad air dryer guy.
