Who knows where you most often see these structures alongside the road, and what is their purpose?

Maybe let some newer drivers take some guesses before someone who knows answers the question. I think I know what they are there for, but I'm not 100% sure myself🤷

Deputy Fowler put it around the land of the lady with the dog so they don't call him in the middle of the night about truck drivers turning around.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
