When I started trucking thirty years ago it was a rat race trying to find parking. Thirty years later? Nothing has changed. You can say that about 95% of trucking today. The essence of trucking doesn't change. What it takes to succeed today is almost exactly what it was 30 years ago. If you had driven back then, you could drive today. If you can drive today, you could have driven back then. It's the same beast.

That's why I decided right from day one that I would help people get their career off to a great start and find success in trucking exactly the way trucking is today. I'm not an activist trying to change the industry. I don't go on long rants about things the government must change. I'll mention a few changes here and there that would improve life for drivers, but I don't expect anyone in government to do anything about it. Well, at least they won't make it better!

Of course drivers are their own worst enemy as well, I've seen drivers throw garbage and human waste out the window and then wonder why places stop letting them park.

That will ultimately be the downfall of any parking opportunities. If anyone wants to open up parking for truckers, the lot will have to be maintained. Heavy trucks will break up the asphalt or dig holes in the gravel, and people will dump trash on the ground. There must be decent lighting and they may need security. All of that costs a lot of money, which means paid parking opportunities are all we can really hope for, and even those are almost non-existent outside of truck stops.
